The MCV Foundation supports the fundraising priorities of its seven major campus partners at VCU’s Medical Center and their many units— School of Allied Health Professions, School of Dentistry, School of Medicine, School of Nursing, School of Pharmacy, Massey Cancer Center, and the MCV Hospitals. Now more than ever, private support is critical for advancing the Medical Center’s mission of teaching, research, and clinical services for greater Richmond and beyond. Through a committed corps of volunteer leaders and dedicated staff across the campus, the MCV Foundation strives to be a catalytic partner for strategic fundraising. Current priorities include the following, with the goal of securing over $50 Million this year:
1) Donor-named, endowed and current scholarships for undergraduate and graduate students;
2) Donor-named, endowed faculty professorships and chairs;
3) Research support across the clinical and disease spectrums;
4) Capital projects, including the Medical Education Center (building to serve as the hub of teaching and learning for several generations of future medical doctors), and a cancer treatment-research tower.
As the MCV Campus has grown and changed, so has the scope of the Foundation’s responsibilities. Today, we pursue our mission to inspire and steward philanthropy throughout the MCV Campus by:
For the better part of two centuries, the mission of the VCU School of Medicine has balanced teaching, research and patient care. In recent years, we have defined our mission as “the constant improvement of the quality of health care for citizens of Virginia using innovative, scholarly activity to create new knowledge, to provide better systems of medical education and to develop more effective health care methods.”
The School of Allied Health Professions serves as an international leader in the education of excellent, innovative and responsible allied health professionals. The School, responsive to the needs of society, promotes excellence in healthcare service, and encourages collaborative research that generates state-of-the-art and specialized knowledge. Educational formats that are technologically advanced and accessible to students through on-campus and distance learning are emphasized.
The School is an integral part of Virginia Commonwealth University and its Medical College of Virginia campus. The School recognizes the importance of being accountable to the students and their families, the Commonwealth, faculty, staff, alumni/alumnae, and other benefactors by using resources effectively. Strong linkages with clinical educators, preceptors, and the community are essential to the success of the School.
Rated among the nation's top professional graduate programs, the VCU School of Pharmacy is at the forefront in Pharmacy, Pharmaceutics, and Medicinal Chemistry education and research. Established in 1898, the School has a long history of pioneering changes in the field of Pharmacy. Throughout the past century Pharmacy practice has changed dramatically, from the art and science of compounding and dispensing medicine to a valuable information resource in drug management for patients and health care professionals. Over 110 years since its founding, the School's programs serve as a model for many schools nationwide.
