Philanthropic Fund Created to Help Community Give Back: During an unprecedented time at Michigan Medicine, many members of the community — along with faculty and staff — have reached out inquiring about ways they can help the organization. With staff working hard to ensure the safety of patients and colleagues, the organization is honored to receive such an outpouring of support from the community. In response, Michigan Medicine has created the COVID-19 Philanthropic Fund. The fund will give the organization the discretion to steer funds to its most pressing needs, from personal protective equipment for providers to testing to tailoring patient rooms for the special needs of COVID-19 patients.
