Why I Donate Monthly
The College Development Department is responsible for all fundraising activities – from Fellows’ annual gifts to independent educational grants from industry.
Membership dues only account for 32% of our annual budget, making donations to the College an invaluable financial component in our ability to participate in and initiate new programs and projects that would otherwise be out of reach. Past contributions have supported an array of important activities including the Global Women’s Medicine Library, Council on Patient Safety in Women’s Health Care and reVITALize programs.
Whether supporting a special initiative, renewing your annual support, structuring a planned gift or endowment, or honoring a colleague or mentor, tax-deductible donations ensure that we are prepared and able to meet the challenges we face in providing the best possible health care for women.
