Patient Giving

University of Louisville physicians are among our region's and nation's finest. By seeing a UofL physician, you benefit from the latest medical advances, often long before they become available in non-academic settings.

Learn how to give

But our doctors are more than terrific caregivers. For many patients, they also become a source of strength, hope and trust. Our physicians take the time to get to know their patients - and often become confidants and friends.

Show your appreciation

Interested in letting your UofL doctor, nurse or other health-care provider know how much they are appreciated? We invite you to make a gift in their honor.

Your gift will honor that special health-care provider and help the UofL School of Medicine advance discoveries and expand patient services.

Your "prescription for philanthropy" can be fulfilled several ways:

  • You may donate to the clinical department you specify through the University of Louisville Foundation.
  • You can create a lasting tribute with an endowment for research, for patient care or to help train new clinicians.
  • You can name the UofL health science program of your choice in your will or estate plans.

You may make a gift a particular program or research area that interests you. Your gift will allow UofL to continue to provide the finest medical care to our patients, to maintain state-of-the-art technology, to further research cures and to sustain the best medical education for future physicians and researchers.
