What giving makes possible

Generosity — at all levels — is what makes our mission come alive.

At IU School of Medicine, the support of donors is preparing healers and transforming health in Indiana and around the world. Donor-funded scholarships open doors of opportunity for students aspiring to become physicians and recruit the best and brightest here to the Hoosier state. Fueled by the generosity of donors, School of Medicine researchers work to find cures and improve care by pursuing bold new ideas. Together, our community of donors make better health a reality every day.

Philanthropy allows us to take risks, and do them quickly. Not on a multi-year timeline, but to say 'this is a great idea, let's follow it a little bit and see where it takes us, and let's start now.'
