Types of Gifts

There are multiple ways to support the Department of Plastic and Reconstructive Surgery through charitable giving.

Why Donate to the Department of Plastic Surgery?

Aesthetic and reconstructive surgery areas of expertise such as hand transplantation, burn wound healing, nerve regeneration, cleft lip and palate repair and breast reconstruction all require continuous, dedicated research in order to advance the science and improve patient care and outcomes. Such investigations have been made possible through the generosity of our patients and donors. Charitable giving allows our physicians and scientists to maintain and accelerate the research that leads to new therapies and surgical techniques. Your support allows our laboratories to exist, provides the resources to staff them, and funds the programs to educate surgeons of tomorrow. Contributions can be made in support of the Department of Plastic and Reconstructive Surgery or can be restricted to benefit the work of a specific surgeon or unrestricted to the Department. With your help, we can continue to make major strides in advancing our research and providing a better quality of life for the world. 

Thank you for your partnership.

The Residents Education and Training Fund

Four men smile at the camera.

Johns Hopkins Medicine has a proud history of leadership and innovation in the field of plastic and reconstructive surgery. This legacy was further enhanced in 2010, when Plastic and Reconstructive Surgery moved from being a division in the Department of Surgery to an independent department.

As one of the first such departments at a major academic institution, we are uniquely poised to marshal greater resources and further new opportunities for advances in the field. The Residents Education and Training Fund, formerly known as the Four Chiefs Fund, encourages these opportunities for advancement.

We would like to thank the following department leaders and alumni for their generous contributions and we hope you will consider joining them in their support of the department’s training programs: Adam L. Basner, M.D.; Steven Bonawitz, M.D.; William A. Crawley, M.D.; M. Felix Freshwater, M.D.; Dr. and Mrs. John E. Hoopes; Randolph M. Howes, M.D., Ph.D.; Dr. and Mrs. Michael Jabaley; Ramon A. de Jesus, M.D.; W. P. Andrew Lee, M.D.; Edward A. Luce, M.D.; Paul N. Manson, M.D.; Bernard L. Markowitz, M.D.; Dr. and Mrs. Raymond F. Morgan; Richard J. Redett, M.D.; Ernesto J. Ruas, M.D.; Justin M. Sacks, M.D.; Dr. and Mrs. Joseph M. Serletti.
