The Discovery Fund

At the George Washington University, we strive to do nothing less than transform the art of healing. As a leading academic medical center, George Washington is dedicated to excellence in patient care, medical education, and biomedical research. Patients at GW Hospital and The GW Medical Faculty Associates not only receive the most advanced care available, but also benefit from the world-class education and groundbreaking research provided by the GW School of Medicine and Health Sciences (SMHS).  This powerful combination helps to drive better patient treatments and outcomes, and is why so many patients have placed their trust in GW.

In a field as complex and rapidly evolving as health care, philanthropic support from patients and friends is critical. Every dollar donated to the Discovery Fund helps The GW Medical Faculty Associates and SMHS heal patients using the most advanced technologies and modalities, discover new knowledge in medical science, teach the next generation of health care professionals, or serve our neighboring communities in Washington, D.C.

Please partner with us in progress and give a special gift, online or by mail. To reach the Development Office please call us at (202) 994-7511 or (855) 417-4644, or write us at:
