The Schiff Center for Liver Diseases is funded by grants as well as generous donations from our patients, their families, and our community partners. Here you can find all the information about our donation needs and goals and how you can contribute to our cause.
The Schiff Center’s greatest need is our ongoing operational account. This fund is used for immediate and ongoing needs of the Schiff Center and its patients and allows us the flexibility to respond to unexpected needs. Please click here for the center’s donation page
Additionally, gifts can be designated for a specific purpose. There are many opportunities to support the Schiff Center such as those listed below.
Schiff Center for Liver Diseases Operational Fund
Unrestricted operational funds are needed to advance the overall clinical, educational, and research mission of the Schiff Center.
Eugene Schiff Fund for Liver Research
The Schiff Center hopes to establish a presence in liver cancer research (hepatocellular carcinoma). This is a daunting task but it is one that the Schiff Center wants to address. Funds are needed to finance the investigative research activities to expand cancer research.
Nonalcoholic Steatohepatitis (NASH) is a disease that affects 2-5% of Americans. It is a silent liver disease which can have severe consequences on patients. The Schiff Center needs funding to investigate better management and detection of this disease.
This funding provides free community testing for hepatitis B and C at events where our volunteer student, nurses, and doctors donate their time to promote awareness of this disease. This gift covers the cost of space rental, signage, test kits, promotional gifts, drinks and snacks for the participants and meals for the volunteers.
There are opportunities for donors to name an office or room in our facilities and have the donor name displayed in the interactive wall display in the waiting room at the Schiff Center for Liver Diseases.
Research Fellowship Endowment
Funding covers investigative research activities, laboratory costs, and staff support and provides funding for the research efforts of a fellow in the Schiff Center for Liver Diseases which will advance and enhance the educational, clinical and research efforts at the medical school.
Thank you for considering contributing to the Schiff Center’s mission to further the research and treatment of liver diseases.
