Make A Gift

Our vision is to provide innovative and compassionate surgical care to our patients based, in part, on novel clinical and research discoveries pioneered at the University of Virginia. This vision can only be realized by engaging friends of Thoracic & Cardiovascular Surgery to share in and support our missions of world class clinical care, cutting-edge research, and innovative teaching.

Where would my donations be directed?

The UVA Health Foundation Health System priorities include the Heart & Vascular Center and the Cancer Center.  Our goal is to provide patients with the best and more effect care available. These two areas are specific to the care of the Thoracic & Cardiovascular Surgery patients.  Donations to the Division of Thoracic & Cardiovascular Surgery can be directed to a number of important areas close to your heart and interests.  These areas may include resident education, research, and specific programmatic development. You may also choose to make a gift in honor of or in memory of an individual, family member, physician, nurse, or professor who made an impact on your life.

To learn more about specific opportunities, or for assistance in finding a program you would like to support, please contact the UVA Health Foundation, 800.297.0102 or 434.924.8432, or contact us online

All gifts are tax-deductible.

Making A Gift

Gifts to the UVA Health System take many forms. Some donors make a gift to an annual fund. Some support a specific research project or endowed fund. Others make gifts in honor of or in memory of a family member, doctor, nurse or professor who made an impact on their life.

You may choose to make a gift in honor of or in memory of an individual, family member, physician, nurse or professor who made an impact on your life. When making a memorial gift, indicate:

· The area you would like to support

· The name of the individual that you are making the gift in honor or in memory of

· The name and contact information for anyone that you would like the Health System Development Office to notify of your gift

Many gift options are available to our donors and some qualify you for one of UVA’s donor recognition societies.
