Help Future Generations of Surgeons and Patients
Grandpa, girl & Dog

We have several different ways to donate to the Department of Surgery, including investments in leading-edge research, the Dr. Hiram C. Polk, Jr. Endowment in Surgery, Trauma and Burn Fund, Residency programs, honorariums and memorial gifts, naming opportunities, special events and much more.

The Oxley Foundation has made a very generous challenge pledge to the Dr. Hiram C. Polk Endowment Fund. The Foundation has pledged to give $1 million to the Polk endowment and has issued a challenge to others to help match the gift.
