Giving stocks and securities

Giving Stocks and Securities

If the transfer of stocks and securities is the best way for you to give, our foundation team can assist you with the details you need to make that unique donation possible. ​​​​​​​

Matching gifts


Inspire others with your donation and lead by example. Matching and challenge gifts are a great way to energize your colleagues and friends to join you in strengthening our mission to provide some level of scholarship funding to each and every student at WVSOM. 

Corporate and business partners

Corporate and Business Partners

We couldn’t do it without you! Our corporate and business partners are the lifeblood of the WVSOM Foundation. Their generosity and enthusiasm keep us motivated. We celebrate them at every possible opportunity and encourage you to support their businesses as part of our extended family.
Sustaining gifts


Weekly, monthly, annually - contribute to the foundation on your terms. If helping the physicians of the future is important to you, we want to make contributing financial support as easy and worry-free as possible. Here are some of the ways we can customize your giving plan.
Annual fund

Annual Fund 

Often matched and sometimes eligible for West Virginia tax credits, the Annual Fund is a vital source for unrestricted donations. Annual Fund dollars secure cutting-edge technology, continuing medical education programs, academic achievement awards, research grants, guest lecturers, scholarships, faculty development and numerous other programs. Annual fund dollars help us maintain WVSOM's ranking as one of America's top medical schools and a national leader in rural medicine.


Helping a medical student achieve his or her goals is an incredible way to celebrate your own achievements or to honor others. Let us help you establish a scholarship named for yourself, a colleague, professor or any person or place dear to you. 


Planned giving

Planned Giving  

Estate planning is an important step for everyone. As you manage your earned assets, consider making WVSOM part of your plan. We can help you design a plan that makes sense for you. A bequest through your will or trust will impact generations of physicians. It may also be eligible for important income, gift and/or estate tax deductions. Call the Foundation Office at 304-793-6852 with any questions.
