As our caregivers across the University of Maryland Medical System continue to be on the front lines of the COVID-19 pandemic, thousands of community partners have come together to support their heroic efforts through philanthropy. From donations of personal protective equipment and meals to monetary contributions to advance research and patient care, thank you for supporting us during this unprecedented health care challenge.

Every day, we continue to learn more about this complex virus and do what is necessary to care for our patients and our workforce. As an anchor institution, it is also our responsibility to reach beyond our hospital walls and help our communities in need.

Our work is far from over. Philanthropy enhances our response effort and helps us meet the evolving needs of this virus. As a system, we implement innovative approaches every day to support the health and wellbeing of all Marylanders.

No matter what the future holds, we will always be here to serve our patients and with your support, we are in this together.
