International Giving

The International Program within Mayo Clinic's Department of Development supports philanthropists across the world to accelerate a bold vision to cure, connect and transform health care for patients everywhere.

Global leadership

Mayo Clinic addresses the world's most serious or complex medical challenges, one patient at a time. As a top-ranked global leader, we are committed to delivering an unparalleled experience with the most trusted clinical expertise. At the same time, we're advancing new cures and rapidly expanding our clinical practice, research and education connections worldwide.

As we set the gold standard in patient care, Mayo Clinic physicians and scientists transform research discoveries into breakthrough treatments and answers to solve unmet patient needs. These same experts train the next generation of health care leaders who will bring the Mayo Clinic Model of Care to communities near and far. We do this in service to humanity, a mission possible because of grateful supporters like you.

A philanthropic gift is the ultimate expression of your confidence in Mayo Clinic. Grateful international patients and visionary benefactors give generously to support Mayo Clinic's nonprofit mission. In the last year, individuals, families, foundations and corporations from 59 countries were so inspired by our patient-focused vision to revolutionize health care that they made donations to support it. Gifts of all sizes make a difference, and you can make your gift in honor of a physician or care team.

Because Mayo Clinic focuses on the most cutting-edge medical advances and shares its knowledge with the world, your gift has the potential to touch not just one life, but millions of lives. We proudly recognize philanthropists from across the globe in the Hall of Benefactors, and we respectfully honor those who wish to give anonymously. Thank you for considering an opportunity to make a lifesaving difference for people everywhere.
