As an alumnus, you can make a significant difference to your alma mater and medical students.
Here are three opportunities to give:
Since 1994, reunion classes have contributed to a medical scholarship fund awarded to students based
on financial need and academics. We hope you will make a contribution to this fund. The financial
burden medical students bear today is considerably more than what you experienced as a student. These
scholarships reward academic excellence and hard work, helping some of our best and brightest students
make it through medical school. We need more of these bright young students to be successful, because
our state, nation, and world will need their healing and their problem-solving minds.
We will announce the total amount raised for the fund during reunion weekend, and give recognition for
each class gift. We challenge you to join your classmates from your graduating year to support your School
of Medicine and the future of medical education in Mississippi. To give to this fund online, go
to umc.edu/givenow, then select School of
Medicine, then Medical Alumni Scholarship Fund.
The 1955 Legacy Society was established in 2015, the medical center's 60th year. The society recognizes
alumni and friends of the university who have either funded or planned a deferred gift, such as a bequest
or a life income plan. Anyone who has an estate gift planned for UMMC or who has completed a life income
trust, retained life estate gift or other charitable trust plan for the university is eligible for membership
in the 1955 Legacy Society. For example, The University of Mississippi Foundation can be made the beneficiary
of donors' estates through specific bequests written in a donor's will or by being named the beneficiary of a
life insurance policy or retirement plan.
If you are interesting in making a planned gift to the University of Mississippi Medical Center, please contact
the Office of Development at 601.984.2300 or firstname.lastname@example.org.
In 1975, the Guardian Society was created to honor the University of Mississippi Medical Center’s most generous
individual donors. During the last four decades, UMMC alumni and other gracious benefactors have helped the School
of Medicine maintain its standard of excellence by giving to the Guardian Society. These “founding members” have
helped UMMC achieve unparalleled success in its threefold mission of providing exceptional patient care, training
the next generation of health care providers and engaging in innovative research. In reigniting this revered
society, all School of Medicine alumni and friends are invited to join the Guardian Society by giving annually
to the school. All alumni and friends giving to the school’s area(s) of greatest need will receive recognition
and benefits annually at the appropriate membership level. These annual gifts will ensure the future of education,
research, and health care at UMMC.
To give to the Guardian Society online, go to umc.edu/givenow,
then select School of Medicine, then Guardian Society – Medicine.
