Southwestern Medical Foundation
is a leading non-profit foundation committed to advancing the important cause
of academic medicine, research and medical education. In 1943, the Foundation established
Southwestern Medical College and helped to nurture its growth from a fledgling
medical school into one of the preeminent medical research and academic centers
in the world. That college today — UT Southwestern — enjoys an international
reputation for discovering the basis for disease through research, applying the
discoveries to the clinical care of patients, and educating the next generation
of health care professionals.
For 75 years, it has been
our privilege to foster a unique culture where generosity can be
imbued with meaning. The Foundation currently manages over $700
million across 1,000 funds, creating a financial resource that will
enable advances in health care benefiting the citizens of
this community, state and the nation for years to come.
