Philanthropic Endeavors Exceed
Two Million Dollars!
The Guild has a proud history of philanthropic support to UF Health and the communities it serves. In excess of $2.2 million has been distributed by the Guild. This support has increased substantially in the past several years as Gift Stop profits and continued member donations have enabled the Guild to create endowments congruent with the values of its members.
- Endowment #1 funds the Equal Access Clinic Network, a network of student-run, free health-care clinics. The agreement was signed on January 8, 2019 in celebration of the Guild’s 60th anniversary. It has been fully funded at a level of $250,000—anticipated to generate annual support of $10,000 in perpetuity.
- Endowment #2 funds the Medical Guild Graduate Research Award for Biomedical Science Interdisciplinary programs, an award established in 1975. The agreement was signed on October 30, 2020 and this second endowment has been fully funded at a level of $200,000—anticipated to generate annual support of $8,000 in perpetuity.
- Endowment #3 funds Palliative Care Support at UF Health hospitals. This agreement was signed on April 28, 2021 and $60,000 of the intended $200,000 endowment has been funded.
