Recognition

Thank you for your support!

The University of Tennessee Medical Center and UT Graduate School of Medicine donors significantly impact our ability to meet the needs of those we serve through healing, education and discovery. And recognizing every donor’s generosity is very important. One of the ways we choose to honor our loyal supporters is through membership in a giving society.

Learn more about the giving societies below and which may be a good fit for you, or call the Development Office at 865.305.6611.

 

Annual Giving Society

Named for the year in which The University of Tennessee Medical Center opened its doors, The 1956 Society recognizes and celebrates the annual philanthropic commitments of individuals in our community. Learn more about why annual support is so critically important to The University of Tennessee Medical Center and UT Graduate School of Medicine, and how you can become a member today.

Physician Leadership Society

“Docere” comes from the Latin root of the word for doctor, meaning “to teach.”  And that’s exactly who the Docere Society honors: the physicians and faculty members at The University of Tennessee Medical Center and UT Graduate School of Medicine. Docere Society members not only dedicate their time to serving patients and the community, but they also provide significant philanthropic support for the organization. Learn more about The Docere Society’s history and how you can become a member today.

Planned Giving Society

Established in 2011, members of The Bernard E. Bernstein Society have expressed their commitment to The University of Tennessee Medical Center and UT Graduate School of Medicine through a very special and important form of financial support: planned gifts. These donors have named the Medical Center or the UT Graduate School of Medicine as a beneficiary of gifts such as bequests, charitable remainder trusts, IRA designations and/or gifts of life insurance.
