Why Give?

The answer can be as personal as your experience during medical school or clinical training years at Drexel University College of Medicine.

Perhaps as a medical student, you benefited from a scholarship funded by an alumni donation; as a resident, gifts improved your clinical experience; as a graduate student, gifts improved research lab opportunities or enhances academic programs.

Whatever the reason — you now have the chance to give back to help Drexel University College of Medicine.

Why give to Drexel University College of Medicine? Because YOU are the Power of ONE!

THE POWER OF GIVING at Drexel University College of Medicine is in the heart and generosity of each medical student, alumnus, parent, faculty member and friend who gives a gift each and every year.

Each one of our students and residents has benefited from the generosity of the alumni who went before them. One gift — whether $5 or $25,000 — has a profound impact on the educational experience. Each annual fund gift is important and necessary each and every year.


  • Fund a scholarship
  • Improve a lab
  • Send a student to an academic or specialty conference
  • Update academic programs
  • Support technological advances

EACH PERSON'S GIFT, given each and every year, is an essential part of the annual budget. Unrestricted gifts to the Annual Fund (learn more!) are current-use dollars that the Dean can apply flexibly to areas of greatest need. Restricted gifts — such as scholarship support — allow donors to designate all, or a portion, of their gift to an area of personal interest. Learn more about scholarships!

ONE GIFT — each and every dollar — given to Drexel University College of Medicine — each and every year — makes a difference.

Donations add up quickly. The average annual gift is $396, and gifts range from $5 to $25,000.
