Alumni Giving

Care, discover, teach are the three pillars of Weill Cornell Medicine’s mission. Alumni support for Weill Cornell Medicine is vital to the continued success of your alma mater. Your gift, combined with the gifts of other loyal alumni, will make an immediate impact on the education and lives of our students. And while many choose to support scholarships, alumni can make a gift to any area of their choice, including our new student residence, the alumni annual fund, the Stethoscope Fund and more.

Recognizing leaders in our alumni community is important. The Weill Cornell Medicine Alumni Giving Society honors generous alumni who contribute $1,000 and above in philanthropy each year. There are four giving levels within the Society, each with special benefits and recognition opportunities. The Society also includes a special “Hall of Fame” program to honor alumni who have contributed a cumulative total of $100,000 and above to Weill Cornell Medicine.  From 1997 to 2020, significant alumni gifts to the institution were honored by the Weill Cornell Medicine Dean’s Circle.

Alumni can choose one of several ways to make a gift to Weill Cornell Medicine:

Weill Cornell Alumni Scholarships

Gifts to support student scholarships make it possible for exceptional students with limited financial means to realize their dream of attending Weill Cornell Medical College. Thanks to the generosity of alumni and friends, our average student debt is consistently lower than the national private medical school average.
