Supporting the Penn Cardiovascular Institute:

Heart disease continues to be the number one killer worldwide. At Penn CVI, our team of researchers have devoted their lives to changing this statistic. The CVI is home to dedicated cardiovascular research laboratories and clinical researchers dedicated to rapidly accelerating breakthrough therapies and diagnostics for heart and vascular diseases. CVI scientists pursue bold projects with the potential for very high impact to prevent and treat cardiovascular diseases including heart failure of all causes including genetic cardiomyopathies, coronary artery disease, and sudden cardiac death. Our long-term goal is to develop precise, individualized approaches to cardiovascular care, matching each patient with the right treatment option. Big ideas in the fight against heart disease are never in short supply at the CVI, but too often, the resources to realize the fullest potential of these ideas are scarce. Philanthropic investment from generous supporters ensures that our team has the resources they need to bring the latest treatments to our patients, first. Financial support for the CVI helps bridge the gaps in funding by providing resources to advance our research and training missions. Each donation makes a difference. 


Ways to Give:

Gifts of every size make an enormous impact in the fight against heart disease, and there are many ways to get involved. A gift of $25,000 or more establishes a fund named in your honor or that of a loved one, and enables you to direct resources to research initiatives, new pilot programs, faculty support, and/or education for the next generation of physician-scientists. Pledges of $25,000+ may be paid over five years.
