Across the University of Maryland Medical System, we are doing what is necessary to care for our patients and our workforce by committing all available resources to the critical work at hand. While the COVID-19 pandemic has created new challenges and altered our daily lives, it has not impacted the quality care we provide to our patients.

Philanthropy enhances our response effort and helps us meet the evolving needs that will undoubtedly rise in the weeks and months ahead. As a system, we are implementing innovative approaches every day to support the health and wellbeing of all Marylanders.

How You Can Help

This is a time for us all to pull together. Every day, the number of confirmed COVID-19 cases rises throughout Maryland. The need for philanthropic support has reached a new level of importance and urgency.

If you would like to support our efforts, please consider a gift to the UMMS COVID-19 Response Fund, which benefits the emerging areas of need:

This fund ensures that we move resources as efficiently as possible and respond to the needs of our frontline workers, patients, and communities. 

Investing in revolutionary technology that significantly reduces the transmission risk of COVID-19.

It is our responsibility to reach beyond our hospital walls and help our communities in need by providing basic necessities, such as food.

Establish a program for our neighboring communities that will provide access to COVID-19 testing and immediate results in order to help limit the spread of this deadly virus.

The need for creating a centralized telehealth infrastructure has reached a new level of importance and urgency.


We are grateful for your unwavering support as we navigate this health care challenge.
