Welcome. This section provides information about giving to Philadelphia College of
Osteopathic Medicine. Each gift to PCOM plays a critical role in advancing the College
new levels of excellence--expanding academic offerings, supporting faculty in their
and research efforts, and providing additional student services.
The Fund for PCOM
Annual gifts by alumni, parents, and other friends provide the College the flexibility
to take advantage of new educational opportunities, respond to unforeseen challenges,
and allow PCOM resources where the needs and opportunities are greatest.
DO Student Scholarship Fund
Every March, PCOM holds a phon-a-thon campaign asking alumni around the country to
support the DO Student scholarship. Funds raised during the phon-a-thon are divided
between two funds, one permanently endowed and the other an operating fund. The operating
fund is spent totally each year on DO Student Scholarships, while a portion of the
income from the endowed account is also given in scholarship support.
The PCOM Parent FundMajor Gifts
Proceeds of the PCOM Parent Fund are critical dollars that enhance academic programs,
provide student advisement services and help the College meet new challenges throughout
the academic year. Gifts to the PCOM Parent Fund gives parents the opportunity to
be involved with PCOM. Every gift large or small makes a difference.
Major Gifts given outright are especially valuable to the College because they help
meet immediate needs. They are frequently made to fund endowments--invested funds
in which the principal is protected and the interest used toward a gift named by the
donor. In this way, the gifts live on in perpetuity as a legacy to honor your generosity
and the good it has done.
Planned giving or charitable gift planning refers to the process whereby a donor gives
an asset to one or more nonprofit organizations using methods that financially benefit
the donor, his or her heirs and the organization(s). Click here to see our new planned giving page.
