Annual Fund

Jefferson School of Health Professions Annual Fund provides for the school’s most immediate needs. Annual gifts from Health Professions alumni are vital to supporting departmental scholarships, providing innovative training, conducting leading-edge research and maintaining our facilities for current and future students. 

Here are some ways the JSHP Annual Fund makes a direct impact:

  • Scholarships and Financial Aid:  The cost of education continues to rise.  Last year, 40% of JSHP applicants were awarded institutional scholarships, thanks to the generous support of donors like you.
  • Interprofessional Education:  JSHP students have multiple opportunities to participate with students and healthcare professionals from other disciplines.  Your support enables the Jefferson Interprofessional Education Center (JCIPE) to improve patient care through the implementation and evaluation of patient-centered, interprofessional education throughout the Thomas Jefferson University curriculum. 
  • Educational Innovation: Our  Faculty strive to develop innovative instructional techniques to ensure that students ground their classroom and clinical experiences in evidence-based practice.
  • Health Professions Academic Building: Construction of our new Academic Building located at 901 Walnut Street is will be completed in December 2011

You may make a gift or pledge to the area of your choice using our secure online giving page. For more information about Annual Giving, contact Melissa Ross at (215) 955-2980 or
