Designated Funds

Do you want to specify where your gift goes? You may choose from these funds (if your gift does NOT have a particular designation, it will put into the Annual Fund).

  • Orthopaedic Annual Fund.  Donations made to the Annual Fund will be used to support residency education, research, patient care, and faculty support.
  • Frank C. Wilson Residency Loan Fund.  Donations given to this fund are used to support a resident who, without financial assistance, would not be able to continue his/her residency education program.

  • Chair's Discretionary Fund.  Your unrestricted donation to the Chair’s Discretionary Fund gives the department chair the ability to use your donation in the area(s) of greatest need.
  • Orthopaedic Surgical Skills Laboratory Fund.  Donations made to the Orthopaedic Surgical Skills Laboratory will help establish a facility to enhance our residents’ surgical training and hands-on experience, again supporting our academic and educational mission.
