In keeping with the original spirit and intent of its founders, Meharry Medical College is dedicated to excellence in education through the utilization of private giving in order to make available opportunities which complement the institution’s mission. To that end, the College is committed to providing ongoing financial resources through private sector fund raising in the following areas: endowment, general and endowed student scholarships, endowed faculty chairs and professorships, faculty development, information technology, campus revitalization, library endowment, and the annual fund.

Gifts of real estate and personal property from individuals and organizations often benefit colleges and universities by making possible the accomplishment of objectives for which support from other sources is limited or unavailable. Gifts also often represent a means by which the donor may contribute to an aspect of higher education that is of particular interest to the donor.
