YOU make WMed a better place.

Meaningful Giving starts with you. 

Together, we save lives, advance research, and train the next generation of physicians. Today, we ask you to make another kind of commitment to WMed - A GIFT.

Your gift helps us realize our potential to improve the health of our community and helps ensure that we recruit the best students who desire to become outstanding clinicians, leaders, educators, advocates, and researchers. You may direct your gift to the endowed scholarship or general fund, or to an academic department to help enhance resident education. Every gift is important — and the work you care about will benefit.

That’s why your gift matters — every gift, any amount, anytime.

How Do UGive?

Payroll Deduction Gifts

It's automatic and convenient, and your gift is spread out through specified pay periods. Start or adjust a payroll deduction by filling out the Employee Giving Pledge Form and sending it to the payroll department.

Employees can also manage their gifts using the WMed Employee Self-Service (ESS). Through ESS, you can make new, recurring, or one-time payroll deductions, adjust your current giving amounts, or cancel deductions at any time.
