Make Your Alumni Gift

Each college has designated the most significant area of need:

RUSH Medical College
Donations to the RMC Alumni Student Success Fund help fund tangible tools for students, such as M1 white coats, stethoscopes and textbooks, and provide hands-on learning opportunities, such as summer research fellowships and global health trips, to advance their studies, explore their interests and gain clinical experience.

RUSH University College of Nursing
Donations to the RUSH Nurses’ Alumni Fund directly benefit current nursing students and the faculty who are actively preparing the next generation of nursing leaders by providing opportunities for education, leadership, research, advocacy, networking and the advancement of evidence-based care.

College of Health Sciences at RUSH University
Donations to the College of Health Sciences Scholarship provide much-needed financial assistance to the most deserving students across all the college’s programs. Gifts, large and small, are combined to help provide scholarship support to students who otherwise wouldn’t be able to attend RUSH. 

Graduate College at RUSH University
Contributions to the RU Grad Student Success Fund support a range of strategic initiatives led by the Dean’s Office, including the purchase of educational materials, student programming and other forms of student support.
