Philanthropic fund created to help community give back

March 30, 2020  //  FOUND IN: News

During an unprecedented time at Michigan Medicine, many members of the community — along with faculty and staff — have reached out inquiring about ways they can help the organization. With staff working hard to ensure the safety of patients and colleagues, the organization is honored to receive such an outpouring of support from the community.

In response, Michigan Medicine has created the COVID-19 Philanthropic Fund.

Gifts to the COVID-19 Philanthropic Fund will enable the organization to direct crucial extra support to its most pressing needs. Contributions may support additional staffing to care for patients, the purchase of equipment to care for patients, the establishment of more drive-through COVID-19 testing stations, emergency needs for front-line workers, and a broad range of emerging opportunities to advance patient care and research.

If you receive inquiries from those desiring to help, please pass along information regarding the new fund. If you are able, please consider giving yourself. Please note, the organization understands that many are facing personal challenges and are unable to give during this time. You have our support and best wishes.

Thank you for the work you are doing — and will continue to do — during this challenging moment.
