GivingTuesday is a day to give back internationally. For almost 200 years, supporters like you have enabled Jefferson to improve lives. As we enter our 200th anniversary, GivingTuesday is your chance to support the community that needs you most. Every gift makes a difference.
After the year’s biggest shopping days with Black Friday and Cyber Monday, people from around the world unite—to stand together—and use their individual generosity to connect to a cause bigger than themselves for GivingTuesday. With gifts of all sizes, community members have collectively raised more than $60,000 for Jefferson on GivingTuesday in previous years.
Because you can help save a life, launch a health career, make a discovery, provide a student with the tools to excel, and ease the burden of pain. Philanthropy makes it all possible and makes YOU an integral part of everything we do here at Jefferson.
GivingTuesday Fundraising Priorities
As Jefferson approaches our 200th anniversary, we will be celebrating the start of our third century by focusing on the future. Your giving will help Jefferson explore innovative research, open doors for promising students, help close equity gaps in the community, and much more.
TJU Scholarships (East Falls, Center City, Sidney Kimmel Medical College)
Scholarships ensure that financial barriers will not deter top students from pursuing a Jefferson education and allow us to attract and retain students with diverse backgrounds, experiences, and interests. Today’s students benefiting from scholarships become tomorrow’s creators, builders, and healers—thanks to the opportunities made accessible to them at Jefferson.
General Greatest Needs
When you donate to the Greatest Need funds for Thomas Jefferson University, you ensure that staff and educators continue to provide a top-of-the-line educational experience to all Jefferson students. Simply put, supporting the areas of greatest need continually provide students with the tools needed to be the change-makers of tomorrow.
The Honickman Center was designed with you in mind. The facility will open in 2024 and allow patients to receive multiple forms of specialty care under one roof. With the latest technologies and comfortable spaces, patients can expect quality, personalized care to meet their needs.
Hospital Greatest Need Funds
When you make a gift to our Greatest Need fund at any hospital location, you empower Jefferson to respond quickly to the evolving needs of our patient community, paving the way for us to fast-track innovative research, open doors in medical education, close health equity gaps in the community, and so much more.
With your gift to patient care at Jefferson, we can maximize our patients’ quality of life by increasing access to high-impact services, psychotherapeutic services, transportation, and lodging support. We’re committed to providing every person the best patient experience, and your gifts make that possible.
Better Together Funds and Funds for Employee Assistance help employees throughout the Jefferson enterprise. When a member of our employee community faces an unexpected hardship, such as a house fire or a car accident, distributions from these funds can provide support to see them through the challenge. Your gift to these funds will go to a member of our team who will directly benefit from your generosity and compassion.
