When patients need answers for rare, serious and complicated conditions, they come to Mayo Clinic. For more than 150 years, we have been the destination where complex medical questions are finally answered.

Since the first generous gift from the Mayo brothers, philanthropy has played a critical role in advancing Mayo Clinic's status as the global authority in medicine. Benefactor support helps solve the world's most complex medical challenges, accelerate the work of researchers in nearly every field, and train the next generation of physicians and scientists.

Health care is undergoing transformation like never before — and philanthropy is essential to driving that transformation. More than ever, generous benefactors have the power to help turn promising research into medical breakthroughs that give patients the highest possibility of a cure.
