2019 Convocation Crowdfunding Campaign

Morehouse School of Medicine’s 35th Fall Convocation & White Coat and Pinning Ceremony

At MSM, Convocation recognizes and celebrates the incoming class of students, and serves as the official kickoff of the new academic year. It is a pivotal time and transformational experience for the first-year students who represent our Doctor of Medicine, Physician Assistant Studies, Graduate Education in Biomedical Sciences and Master of Public Health programs.

This time-honored tradition is viewed as a rite of passage by many of the students and alumni who have participated throughout MSM’s history. Incoming MPH students receive blue blazers and pins symbolizing their entrance into a field dedicated to protecting the public health and welfare of our communities. First-year MD and – this year, for the first time ever – Physician Assistant students receive their white coats, and GEBS students are fitted with their lab coats as symbols of the trust bestowed upon them as they carry on the noble traditions of medicine and science. GEBS students also receive pins.

This is How You Can Help

Crowdfunding is designed to make donating easy, fun, and supports gifts of all sizes.  We realize that every gift matters, whether it is $25, $250 or more. Because what you give will make a tremendous impact on our students and help ease the cost of medical school education.

Crowdfunding is also about sharing and encouraging others to join in. When you share your support with your social network, that allows friends, family, and peers to share in the MSM story. It also provides them with an opportunity to invest in the future healthcare leaders and learners who are preparing to serve all of our communities. By helping us "raise the crowd," we are confident that we can exceed our $10,000 goal.

Giving is easy:

1. Make a 100% tax-deductible contribution at the level that is right for you by clicking an amount to the right.

2. Share your generosity with your social network on Facebook, Instagram, LinkedIn and Twitter! Please remember to use the hashtags #MSMConvocation2019 and #MSMImpact!

3. Feel amazing because you just helped a deserving student who may save a life, change health policy, or conduct groundbreaking research that provides a cure for a life threatening illness.

Thank you in advance for your commitment and for sharing the story of Morehouse School of Medicine all around the country. We are truly stronger together!

 

Levels
Choose a giving level

$25

First Year

People often ask how smaller contributions can make a difference. When combined, your gift along with the gifts of friends and family can be very impactful. Investment at all levels helps provide the financial support our students need and deserve.

$100

Researcher

Recognized as the top medical school in the nation fulfilling its social mission, Morehouse School of Medicine awarded $2.8 million in scholarships last year. Your $100 contribution ensures MSM continues to deliver on its mission.

$250

Resident

The average medical school debt is approximately $190,000, but for many MSM graduates, that burden is closer to $250,000. Your gift of $250 serves as a commitment to helping our students reduce that debt load and bridge the gap.

$500

Healthcare Leader

MSM students are educated to be healthcare leaders who are fluent in community-focused health practice, particularly in underserved communities. Your gift of $500 will empower our future policy makers and health practitioners as they follow their dreams in support of our social mission.

$1,000

Gloster Member

A minimum gift of $1,000 will grant you access to MSM’s exclusive giving society, the Hugh M. Gloster Society, named in honor of one of MSM's esteemed founders and the late president of Morehouse College. As a $1,000 contributor, you will receive a Gloster welcome packet, lapel pin, a copy of our MSM annual report, and a special invitation to the annual Hugh M. Gloster Society Dinner Celebration.
