The Wake Forest School of Medicine MD graduates set the standard for compassionate, collaborative care and innovation in biomedical advances locally, nationally and globally. Gifts from our alumni help us continue our tradition of providing a rigorous, transformational and supportive educational experience. 

Your contributions offer assistance for future physicians who will ignite life-changing discoveries and deliver care through their purpose and passion.

There are many ways to make a lasting gift that will honor the heritage and support the future of the Wake Forest School of Medicine.

"Once I found out about the scholarship, it was extremely helpful knowing that I would have help going through these next few years at Wake Forest University School of Medicine."

Medical Alumni Association Annual Fund

Gifts from alumni to the Medical Alumni Association (MAA) Annual Fund allow the School of Medicine to maintain its high standards and to continue attracting the most talented medical students, regardless of their financial needs.

The fund's primary role is to preserve the school's mission of excellence in medical education. The fund provides unrestricted funding for priority needs, such as scholarship support, library resources, faculty support and the maintenance and expansion of educational programs and facilities.

Your gift to the MAA Annual Fund supports the scholarships that give the school a competitive edge in attracting the most promising students.

Reunion Giving

Every year, our alumni come together to celebrate their class and show their pride and gratitude for their Wake Forest University School of Medicine MD Program roots. Our experiences in the MD Program shaped our lives and laid a foundation for success. You can extend that legacy by supporting the MAA Annual Fund, a fund of your choice or a class scholarship in recognition of your reunion year. All gifts made in honor of your class or in honor of your reunion help foster class unity and a spirit of celebration.
