Supporting Biomedical Research at Georgetown

Ways to Support Biomedical Research

Funding from private donors is critical for scientists to advance innovation in the understanding and treatment of life-threatening diseases. There are several ways that Partners in Research program members can contribute to the cutting-edge research being conducted at Georgetown.

Donations to the Partners in Research program are pooled together to fund the projects chosen at the annual selection meeting. In addition, Partners can fund an individual project that interests them personally.

Partners may also make a gift of stock or appreciated securities, set up an endowment, or include Georgetown University Medical Center in their estate planning.

A planned gift establishes a legacy at Georgetown for generations to come. It can also offer substantial financial benefits and tax savings.
