From chairs to fellowships, endowments provide permanent, annual support to University Hospitals. Endowed gifts are a wonderful way for individuals or a family to honor a particular physician and they support groundbreaking clinical trials, educational opportunities and the latest, cutting-edge treatments.

Creating an Endowment

There are several ways to establish an endowment:

  • Chairs - provide a recurring income stream for leading-edge research and innovative practices;
  • Master Clinician - recognizes our leading physician-scientists;
  • Endowed Directors - recognizes medical professionals in leadership positions;
  • Fellowships - provide assistance in our ongoing efforts to recruit young, highly talented physicians to UH;
  • Funds in support of a particular area of UH.

Establishing an endowment supports UH during a donor’s lifetime and for generations to come, ensuring your generosity will forever be a guiding force in our success. To establish an endowment fund, please contact the Director of Gift Planning, Patricia Fries, at 216-844-0430 or patricia.fries@UHhospitals.org.

our patients and their families.
