Potential Gift Designations
Help the chair of the Harvard Department of Ophthalmology create and support opportunities that align with the department’s tripartite mission to provide premier clinical care, perform transformational research, and offer world-class training for future leaders in ophthalmology.
Help provide critical educational resources and opportunities to our trainees. We work to attract the best and brightest residents and clinical fellows, and we strive to provide them with world-class training that prepares them to become leaders in their fields. Your support can help fund travel awards to national conferences, named lectures, visiting lectures, and innovative training in the state-of-the-art Altschuler Ophthalmology Surgical Training Laboratory.
Help us improve the diagnosis, treatment, and prevention of eye diseases and vision loss by supporting basic, translational, and clinical research—the building blocks for many breakthroughs in medicine. Your support, in areas like retina, optic neuropathies, cornea, and ocular genomics, brings us one step closer to helping people worldwide.
Today, there is a growing demand for high-quality eye care as the incidence of chronic eye diseases like age-related macular degeneration and diabetic retinopathy continue to increase. Our clinician scientists are at the forefront of addressing some of the most significant and exciting advancements in ophthalmology that will prepare us to meet these challenges. Whether you designate your contributions to support a specific goal, research project, or faculty member, or make your gift without restrictions, your support will make a difference.
There are many ways to create a meaningful legacy to help ensure that the Department of Ophthalmology remains a global leader in ophthalmic care, research, and education. Establishing an endowed chair or fellowship, or including a bequest in your will or living trust, are just a few examples that can have a long-term impact on the department’s future.
