Making Donations

The Department of Plastic Surgery greatly appreciates your interest in making a donation to support our work. Whether you would like to contribute to research initiatives, equipment needs, or educational programs, there are many opportunities for meaningful gifts at every dollar level.

  • An honorary or memorial gift is a thoughtful way to recognize the accomplishments or memory of a colleague, friend, or relative.
  • Many corporations will match employees’ personal donations; this additional support can double or even triple the value of your gift.
  • Consult your tax advisor to determine if your gift to the University is tax deductible.
