The costs associated with these trips are significant, and include such overhead as medical supplies and team members' airfare. Private and corporate generosity can do much to reduce the impact of these expenses on team members while fueling the trips' successes. By giving, you can become an integral part of this educational and humanitarian effort and contribute to Emory's ongoing mission to help define the future of healthcare in this country and abroad.
There are several ways to donate:
Gifts can be mailed to the Office of Gift Records, 1762 Clifton Road NE, Suite 1400, Atlanta, GA 30322. Please make checks payable to Emory University and note the Emory Haiti Alliance with your gift.
Donations can also be made using check, money order, electronic funds transfer, or by giving appreciated stock or other real property. You can also invest in the program with a bequest or life income gift, which can provide for you and your family, create tax benefits, and leave an important legacy for this nexus of Emory's educational and international efforts.
The fastest and most cost-effective option is to use the Emory Online Giving page. Please choose "other" under "gift designations" and write "surgery education medical missions – Haiti" in the Special Designation box before completing the transaction. The gift processing team will have this information when the card is processed, and gifts will be routed to the correct location, often in less time than it takes to process a check.
