WMed Philanthropy Team

The Office of Development and Alumni Affairs proudly supports WMed by building and coordinating connections with students, faculty, donors, alumni, and friends of the medical school and promoting its mission through meaning philanthropy. Our department is responsible for cultivating relationships with donors and strengthening our ties within the community to further our mission to educate and inspire lifelong learners to be exceptional Clinicians, Leaders, Educators, Advocates, and Researchers of tomorrow. Also referred to as the WMed philanthropy team, we are committed to building, cultivating, and stewarding relationships in order to secure the necessary resources and financial support to enhance the experience for all WMed constituents. 

Our office strives to create meaningful engagement with alumni and to offer programs and services that bring value to their lives while enabling them to serve their alma mater. We sponsor a broad spectrum of programs and activities aimed at connecting and supporting our faculty, staff, alumni, students, residents, and friends of the medical school. We also supervise and direct the planning and coordination of fundraising events involving selected student/alumni affairs for WMed.
