Alumni Fund

There are 1782 reasons to give to Harvard Medical School.

Strong alumni support remains one of the School’s most steadfast and proud traditions. Annual gifts to the Alumni Fund—which includes gifts of less than $100,000 from HMS alumni for any purpose—in fiscal year 2016 totaled nearly $4.2 million from 2,642 donors.

These gifts are put to immediate use to advance the School’s mission and priorities of education, discovery, service, and leadership. In 2016, Alumni Fund support helped to:

  • Provide need-based financial aid to the 80 percent of HMS students who qualify for it;
  • Advance neurobiology research, including deepening our understanding of how the basal ganglia interact with cognitive centers in the brain and how drugs that treat schizophrenia work;
  • Reshape learning spaces to complement a medical curriculum redesigned for the 21st century;
  • Establish a new Program in Aging and Disability within the Department of Health Care Policy to investigate the complex social and economic impacts of the shifting age profile of the U.S.;
  • Expand educational offerings within the Center for Bioethics, including a core required course for medical students; and
  • Much, much more.

Make a gift to support the Alumni Fund today.
