Support the Archives for Women in Medicine

Your generous support makes our work possible

The Archives for Women in Medicine is made possible by the generous support of our donors. Your donations make possible the ongoing effort to acquire, make accessible, and preserve unique resources highlighting women’s achievements in medicine and the medical sciences. 

The Archives for Women in Medicine is still supported through the generosity of our original donors - the faculty and staff of the Longwood graduate schools and the affiliated hospitals. Our current fundraising efforts aim to make the Archives for Women in Medicine a permanent, endowed program of the Center for the History of Medicine.

On average, a $1000 donation supports making one box of unique 20th century paper records with no order available to researchers. Your tax-deductible gift in any amount makes an immediate and tangible impact on the collection, preservation, and celebration of women’s achievements in medicine and the medical sciences. 

You can make your tax-deductible gift online through Harvard Medical School's Online Giving Form; please select the Archives for Women in Medicine Fund.

We also accept donations by downloading and completing the Archives for Women in Medicine Donation Form.

To learn more about the impact of your donation, please contact Project Archivist Joan Ilacqua at joan_ilacqua@hms.harvard.edu or 617-432-7393.
