Giving and naming opportunities

Your gift to Geisinger Commonwealth School of Medicine has impact where you want it to. You can support student scholarships, research, a specific program or contribute to the school’s most pressing needs.

Geisinger Commonwealth offers a number of naming opportunities that provide a special way for you to leave a lasting mark on the school. Whether you choose to use your name or the name of someone special, there are many ways to take advantage of this exceptional opportunity.

  • Geisinger Commonwealth’s Medical Sciences Building, constructed in 2011, provides opportunities for named spaces. From naming the building to naming a library study carrel, there is a giving level that will meet your needs. Our current Naming Opportunities List provides the details. Call 570-207-3697 or email for additional information.
  • An endowed gift enables you to provide perpetual support for the program or area of your choice. Annually, a portion of the interest earned is used, while new gifts and the remaining interest are continually invested to grow the fund. We invite you to consider endowing any of the new funds as indicated at the levels below, or contribute your gift to an existing endowment.
