Ways to Give
Types of Gifts
Annual and Outright Gifts
The Temple University School of Medicine at West Penn Allegheny Health System (TUSM/WPAHS) benefits substantially from the generosity of individuals and organizations who support the Medical School’s Highest Priority fund through an outright gift, or gifts given on an annual basis through various annual appeals. The Highest Priority fund is used to offset operating expenses with the savings redirected toward supporting medical education programming. Contributors can also direct their support to a specific education department or program.
Gifts or pledges can be made conveniently through the Give now online gift processing page, or by completing the Medical School’s Giving Form and returning it by mail with your gift. You may also fax this form to our office along with your credit card of pledge information.
Honor or Memorial Gifts
Any gift or grant to TUSM/WPAHS can be designated in honor of a professor, physician, staff member, employee, or in memory of a friend or loved one. Honor memorial gifts can be made conveniently through the Give now online gift processing page using a credit card, or by completing the honor/memorial section of the Medical School’s Giving Form and returning it by mail with your contribution, or by fax with your credit card information.
Corporate Matching Gifts
Many companies match charitable donations made by their employees or an employee’s spouse. This additional support can double or even triple the value of the original gift. Please check with your human resources department or corporate foundation to see if your company or organization has a gift-matching program.
Grants are contributions from foundations, businesses, corporations or other organizations that are given in support TUSM/WPAHS. Grants may also be received from government agencies. Individuals representing grant making institutions are invited to contact the Office of Fund Development at 412-359-5110 for additional information on providing grants to ASRI.
Major gifts provide the financial resources to fund facility renovation and construction, capital equipment purchases, simulation education technology, and the establishment of endowments that provide lasting financial support to a specific department, faculty member, or education program. Often these gifts involve public recognition of the individual donor and memorial recognition for a loved one. For information please call 412-359-5110.
Estate and Investment Gift Planning
There are a number of unique charitable giving options that financially benefit TUSM/WPAHS while simultaneously providing financial and tax benefits to donors for estate and investment planning purposes. Please contact the Office of Fund Development at 412-359-5110 for information on planned gifts.
