Opportunities to Make a Difference
@ The Renaissance School of Medicine
at Stony Brook University
Your gift, no matter the amount, matters. Your ongoing philanthropic support allows the Renaissance School of Medicine to:
- Advance the medical sciences by translating cutting-edge biomedical science into diagnostic, therapeutic and prognostic advances
- Develop a diverse cadre of caring and skilled physicians and biomedical scientists who are outstanding candidates for graduate and specialty training programs
- Deliver compassionate clinical care in an efficient, state-of-the-art, safe and cost-conscious fashion, and
- Reach out and serve multiple communities across Long Island
Each year, donations to the Renaissance School of Medicine Fund for Excellence fund research, award student scholarships and distribute funds where needed the most.
Donations to the Renaissance School of Medicine provide much-needed financial aid to medical school students each year. With the rising cost of a medical education, this scholarship helps ease the financial burden many students face and increases the diversity of medical school students.
Your gift may be made through an outright contribution of cash, securities, real estate or other real or personal property, as well as through planned, annual giving, estate gifts such as bequests and trusts, and life income gifts, such as charitable gift annuities and charitable remainder trusts. We also welcome your pledge. Pledges of more than $5,000 may be fulfilled over a multi-year period (up to five years).

If you choose to use depreciated securities to make your gift, in most cases, it will be more advantageous to sell the shares and give the proceeds to the Renaissance School of Medicine.
