The Power of Philanthropy

Benefactors are integral to Mayo Clinic Alix School of Medicine's mission to prepare the next generation of physicians to lead the transformation of health care. Philanthropy advances the school's efforts to educate students to solve the complex health care issues facing our world, and benefactor generosity allows the most talented students to attend medical school regardless of their ability to pay.

A transformational gift from Mr. Jay Alix catalyzed this vision, but it is just the beginning. Mr. Alix has challenged Mayo Clinic to raise an additional $100 million in scholarship support to ensure we are the most attractive destination for exceptional and diverse applicants.
