Office of Institutional Advancement

Our Mission


We improve lives through generosity.

The Office of Institutional Advancement (OIA) is committed to connecting alumni with their alma mater and to developing philanthropic opportunities that enable donors to help others through Jefferson’s life-changing work.

Our goal is to help Jefferson reimagine a bold, new future for health, education, and discovery to create unparalleled value for our whole community—including patients, families, students, alumni, staff, faculty, researchers, and benefactors—with three guiding principles always in mind:

  • Put People First
  • Be Bold and Think Differently
  • Do the Right Thing

OIA brings people together from all disciplines and walks of life to serve a larger purpose. We foster meaningful, transformative connections and partnerships in and across Jefferson’s hospitals, academic programs, and research initiatives; the communities we serve; and forward-thinking institutions around the world to usher in a better tomorrow for all.
