How You Can Help the Office for Women's Careers
You can help in a very meaningful way by making a charitable gift to the OWC. These "unrestricted" gifts are so important in helping us to progress in our mission.
Philanthropy has helped support the Office's Faculty Development Awards, which provide bridge funding for junior women faculty to sustain productivity during their child-rearing years. These competitive awards are intended to provide transitional or start up funding for each recipient with the goal of increasing their ability to obtain significant government funding in the future. Since the program's initiation in 1997, the Office has awarded 23 women with grants of which seven awardees have completed the funding cycle and have had great success in the advancement of their careers.
Philanthropy is also needed to help expand the services that the office provides to senior faculty and those who are at the critical mid-point juncture of their careers. Your support would greatly strengthen the Office of Women's Careers services and have a significant impact on the its work in providing support and assistance to female staff in the academic promotion process, formalizing mentor relationships and increasing the retention rates of women clinicians at the MGH.
Planned Giving and Bequests
The MGH offers a number of ways to make significant charitable gifts to the OWC. You may want to consider making a "planned gift," such as remembering OWC in your will; establishing a charitable remainder trust or annuity, while receiving an income for your life and/or the life of your designated beneficiary; naming the OWC as a beneficiary on your retirement account or life insurance policy; or donating personal property, such as stocks, bonds, or real estate.For additional information on planned giving/bequests, visit our main hospital Development Office website, or call the Planned Giving Office at 617.726.2200.
Many companies match charitable gifts by employees, retirees and directors. Please check with your company's Human Resources Department to learn if your company matches charitable gifts to hospitals.
