The University of Maryland School of Medicine relentlessly seeks ways to improve the health and well-being of an increasingly global population within a rapidly changing and challenging environment. New discoveries in our laboratories, new innovations in our clinical settings, and novel curriculum changes are transforming the future of medicine.

Private gifts are critical to sustaining our standard of excellence and continuing our research growth. Through discovery and introduction of new scientific knowledge you can help enhance our ability to diagnose, treat and ultimately cure diseases. Your gift is a wonderful way to say thank you for a job well done, to give back to the institution where you were trained, to advance research initiatives in an area meaningful to you or to create an enduring legacy in honor of a loved one or friend.

Philanthropy fuels discoveries to test novel ideas and gather significant data that may lead to future NIH funding or the next big discovery.

Philanthropy improves academics by bringing together leading experts and the brightest students and supporting their collaboration and innovations.

Philanthropy supports compassionate healing by ensuring that we continue to provide advanced clinical care to all.

Gifts to support the University of Maryland School of Medicine are administered by the University of Maryland Baltimore Foundation, Inc.

Grateful Patients

Many grateful patients and families have been touched by the compassionate care they received by UMSOM doctors and wish to express their appreciation in a meaningful way that can improve the health of others for years to come.

These gifts provide an opportunity for those who want to give something back, and at the same time allow us to advance research, provide quality medical education and impart leading edge patient care, from expert treatment of neurological diseases to state-of-the-art transplant, trauma, and cancer care.
