Annual Giving

The Jefferson fund supports doctors, researchers and students

Each year, loyal donors help us advance the Jefferson University and Hospital mission through their annual gifts. Together, we are changing the face of the healthcare by ensuring that educators are teaching innovative and holistic curricula emphasizing hands-on clinical exposure and an integrated vision of medical practice.

Just as we are redefining health education, our health system is undergoing a transformation by incorporating cutting-edge technologies. Your gifts make possible new systems like JeffConnect, our telemedicine portal that is enabling patients to meet with Jefferson doctors online, anytime and anywhere.

Gifts to the Jefferson Fund support the entire enterprise and touch the lives of every single person who walks through our halls—from our students to our patients.

Top Priorities

Provide Jefferson the ability to focus and prioritize support across our six Colleges.

Support doctors and researchers as they generate innovative approaches to diseases.

Assist patients and their families in small ways that make a big difference.

Employee Gift Matching

You could double or even triple the amount of your donation if your employer provides matching gifts. More than 15,000 companies and subsidiaries have a program that matches gifts made to support higher education.
