Why Giving Matters

The University of Miami and the University of Miami Health System – UHealth – rely on the generosity of our alumni, friends, faculty, staff, and grateful patients to ensure that we have the resources necessary to remain one of the nation’s leading institutions.

Be it to our picturesque Coral Gables campus, for our cutting-edge patient care at UHealth, or for the world-class marine and atmospheric science hub on beautiful Biscayne Bay; your gift makes a difference to every corner of the U:

  • Every scholarship dollar received helps to improve the incoming class and to retain students who are already enrolled. Scholarships ensure that students have the resources to obtain the best education possible and make their dreams a reality.

  • Charitable contributions enable students, faculty, physician-scientists, and researchers to carry out a vast array of research projects, many interdisciplinary in nature, that actively contribute to the generation of new knowledge and innovative solutions to the world’s most pressing problems.

  • Philanthropic support of the University of Miami Health System supports lifesaving research and high-quality, compassionate care. Gifts to UHealth ensure that our more than 1,200 physicians, scientists, and highly-trained specialists can provide state-of-the-art medical care to their patients, from the laboratory to the bedside.

The many accomplishments of our students, faculty, physician-scientists, researchers, and staff, as well as our continued progress as an institution, would not be possible without your contributions. By making a gift to UM, no matter the amount, you will ensure that our students receive a transformative educational experience of the highest quality, advance groundbreaking research that will change lives, and contribute to the well-being of our communities, both locally and globally.

Your generosity and dedication are instrumental in helping to steer the future of the University of Miami and UHealth. Thank you for your support!
