Alumni loyalty truly means the world to us at the UNC School of Medicine.

Your support of the Loyalty Fund makes it possible for your alma mater to attract and enroll outstanding students, support faculty teaching talent, and graduate classes with manageable debt.

Thanks to your annual generosity, our students and faculty are able to learn, train and conduct research in remarkable ways that reach far beyond our school’s hallowed halls.

As the state’s largest medical school, it is critical that the UNC School of Medicine adjust to the shifting health care landscape and better prepare the next generation of physicians. We aim to educate a diverse physician workforce that will address the priority health needs of the people of North Carolina and throughout the world. We will also continue to produce world-class research that provides breakthrough treatments and cures that reach across and beyond our state lines.

We are grateful for your past support of the Loyalty Fund and we hope you will continue to help us advance the future of medicine.With the uncertainty of state and federal funding, our students, residents, faculty and the patients we treat at UNC Health Care are all potentially impacted. As an alumnus, you can help provide the margin of excellence to offset that balance through your support of the Loyalty Fund that fuels our medical education programs.
