Alumni Giving

Mayo Clinic alumni benefactors give generously to support a wide range of patient care, education and research programs, and other initiatives. Alumni can designate their gifts to the area of greatest need (unrestricted), as a tribute gift to honor a mentor or colleague, or to support a specific department, research initiative or fund.

What is Doctors Mayo Society?

Doctors Mayo Society is a recognition program for physicians, scientists and leaders who are committed to advancing the mission of Mayo Clinic through philanthropy. They have a shared vision of providing hope and healing to people across the world.

Mayo Clinic pioneers continue to shape the future of medicine. Since 1977, their support has set a powerful example that inspires benefactors of Mayo Clinic to add their own contributions.

Why Give?

The current health care marketplace is full of uncertainties and recent changes in the health care industry have placed considerable pressure on our physicians to see more patients each day. We need to protect the essence of what makes us unique at Mayo Clinic.

Becoming a part of Doctors Mayo Society means investing in the future of medicine — an investment in your world. You empower Mayo Clinic to solve the world's most serious and complex medical challenges — one patient at a time.
