Endowments


We depend on our friends - philanthropic individuals and foundations - to aid us in our commitment to biomedical research. We gratefully acknowledge the many donors who have contributed more than $64,300,000 for 27 Endowed Chairs that reside in the Department of Medicine. In addition, Department of Medicine faculty hold 10 Endowed Chair positions in which the endowment is managed outside the Department (Cancer Center, Webb-Waring Institute, Colorado Prevention Center), enabling us to pursue new understanding and treatment of diseases that are afflicting millions of Americans.

Important areas where we have no endowed professorships are cystic fibrosis, diabetes, Parkinson's Disease, vascular biology, and inflammatory bowel diseases including ulcerative colitis and Crohn's Disease, to mention a few.

We must solidify our research funding base in the 21st Century - to bring the research advances of our dedicated and energetic scientists to the patient, and to translate these findings into effective preventions, therapies, and even cures.

As we depend on our generous friends - THEY IN TURN, CAN DEPEND ON US - to continue in our firm commitment to improvement of health through biomedical research.

To establish a Research Chair, the Regents of the University of Colorado require a gift of $1.5 million. The Temple Hoyne Buell Heart Center was endowed with $2.5 million. We would be happy to assist in identifying potential matches for challenge gifts.

Interested individuals should contact the Department of Medicine or the University of Colorado Foundation.
