Campaign Milestones and Momentum
Philanthropy advances UVA Health's mission.
In fiscal year 2023, UVA Health’s donors provided $181 million in commitments, a milestone achievement toward the ambitious $1 billion target as part of the University of Virginia’s Honor the Future Campaign.
The steadfast support of visionary donors is foundational to UVA Health’s mission to “transform health and inspire hope for all Virginians and beyond.” These funds enable UVA Health to discover and develop innovative treatments, expand healthcare access for underserved communities, recruit top-tier clinicians from around the globe, mentor the next generation of medical experts, and ultimately, enhance the overall well-being of individuals throughout the commonwealth.

Susan Gendron and Roger Gendron have made a joint commitment to support the expansion of the NICU/ PICU at UVA Health Children’s. Their investment will provide vital resources to upgrade and expand these critical care units.
