Your Power to Heal at MedStar Through Research

Join me by investing in our future and the future of research at MedStar Health! Monday marked the official launch of the 2018 Giving: The Power to Heal Campaign at MedStar Health.

You are invited to participate and make a Gift of Gratitude in honor of a colleague, friend, or caregiver. Your expression of gratitude will extend beyond your daily work and positively impact our patients and their families as gifts of gratitude in support of “Research at MedStar Health” to support the New Investigator Giving Grant Fund.

The New Investigator Giving Grant Fund helps to establish the careers of investigators who are new to MedStar, advance health for patients in the communities we serve, and provide initial funding for research that can lead to external grant funding. As a result of generous contributions in the 2017 campaign, MHRI was able to fund six awards for 2018 and over 15 since we started this campaign! Learn more about the 2018 recipients here.

Participation is simple! Your gift of any size is welcome.
  • Make a commitment online at MedStarHealth.org/InspireHealing and select ‘Research at MedStar’ in the drop-down menu to direct your donation to the New Investigator Fund.
  • Text GRANT to 51555 to access the donation form and make your gift via credit card or payroll deduction.
  • Complete the commitment form and return it to Kristi Rasmussen, Director of Philanthropy for Research, at Kristi.Rasmussen@medstar.net or via Interoffice Mail to MedStar Good Samaritan Hospital, Office of Philanthropy.
Once a gift is made, you will receive an email with the Gifts of Gratitude eCard so that you can express your gratitude to your honoree with a personal note! It is easy and can be very impactful.

Each year, more and more associates and investigators choose to make a donation to help support Research at MedStar Health. There are two videos below that highlight that spirit of gratitude. In the first video, hear from a research participant, expressing his appreciation for MedStar and our commitment to advancing health through research at MedStar. In the second, hear two of our colleagues expressing their appreciation for one another, their associates and advancing health through research at MedStar.

Thank you to those who made a commitment to Research at MedStar Health.
