A Heightened Trajectory of GW’s Growth
The George Washington University School of Medicine and Health Sciences is forging a dynamic vision for the future. We aim to achieve new heights of excellence in fulfilling our mission of education, research, and patient care. In leveraging the strengths of our close partnerships with the George Washington Medical Faculty Associates and the George Washington University Hospital, we have the elements to attain broader recognition as a great academic medical center.
One fact is clear in surveying the most outstanding academic medical centers across the country: every great institution has great philanthropy. Tuition revenue, insurance reimbursements, and contracts alone will not generate the resources required to achieve excellence. Philanthropy provides the needed funds to support breakthrough research, cutting edge clinical care, and the most modern methods of medical and health science education.
For that reason, the philanthropic support of our alumni, grateful patients, and friends has never had more importance or direct impact on our mission. For example, contributions that create endowed professorships allow us to retain and recruit leading physician-scientists and educators for our faculty. Donations to establish funds that drive biomedical research, clinical enhancement, technology, and scholarships will heighten the trajectory of GW’s growth. Donations to existing funds that support these purposes help us in a similar manner. These examples are a few of the main elements for our development efforts now and in the years ahead.
We invite you to partner with us in taking on these ambitious new goals and in garnering widespread recognition for GW Medicine. We look forward to achieving great success with your help.
