Gifts from Patients & Friends

Oncologist with a patient

When a person or program has cared for you or a loved one at GW, you may want to find an additional way to say “thank you.” 

Philanthropic giving is an opportunity to honor those who made a difference in your health while supporting our work to provide high-quality, compassionate care to our community. 

Your support of the GW Discovery Fund or the GW Cancer Center helps our dedicated care teams and researchers at the GW Medical Faculty Associates and the School of Medicine and Health Sciences:

Improve access to health care for all members of our community.

  • Care for our patients with the latest technologies and therapeutics.
  • Pursue promising research to prevent and treat disease. 
  • Develop innovations to improve diagnosis and management of health conditions. 
  • Provide world-class education to the next generation of health care professionals.
