Featured Giving Opportunities
Support the Fertility Center Advancing the Field of Fertility Preservation
Johns Hopkins is proud to offer a range of fertility preservation methods — including egg freezing, fertilized egg (embryo) freezing, sperm banking for cancer patients, and ovarian tissue cryopreservation. Many of the positions required to holistically care for patients during difficult fertility journeys are not covered by insurance. Philanthropy allows for faculty, staff and administrators to have the ultimate flexibility in providing the best patient experience possible.
Support Gynecologic Cancer Prevention Finding Cures for Women's Cancers
Johns Hopkins is a leader in patient-centered care for people with gynecologic cancers. 'Below the belt' cancers require complex treatment and a research team with superior investigative, surgical and analytical skills. Your support helps our doctors focus on decreasing mortality from gynecologic cancers through research and innovation.
Support Our Residents Fueling Research Innovation
Philanthropic support assists trainees during their residency training, through fellowships and during new appointments in developing research. Federal research awards are hard to obtain and require preliminary data in order to be considered. Supporting the Gynecology and Obstetrics Alumni Society provides bridge funding that will help trainees and early career faculty members compete for larger clinical research grants.
Support Community Partnerships The Violet Project
Supporting our community is central to the mission of Johns Hopkins Medicine. The Violet Project was born to enhance access to menstrual products and reproductive health care for socially vulnerable adolescents and young adults. Your support will help The Violet Project to sustain their digital health platform and develop a network of teen leaders who volunteer as advocates and champions in their local schools.
