The Background

Your gift is important

Our care providers at the University of Maryland Medical Center (UMMC) continue to be on the front lines of the COVID-19 pandemic—so our work is far from over. Philanthropy plays a vital role in our response efforts and has benefited cutting-edge research and clinical trials, development of novel treatments, and outreach to the community. The COVID-19 Response Fund ensures that we can respond as efficiently as possible to the greatest needs of our frontline workers, patients, and communities.

The Impact

Inspirational community support

Thousands of community partners have come together over the past year and a half to support our health care heroes through philanthropy. From donations of personal protective equipment, meals, and personal care items, to monetary contributions to advance research and patient care, thank you to the people, businesses, and organizations who selflessly stepped up during a time of great need. We are forever grateful to everyone who gave to us and continues to support us.
