Since 2022, Cleveland Clinic Alumni Association proudly recognizes alumni for their philanthropic contributions of $5,000 or more by welcoming them into our Alumni Legacy Society (formerly known as Centennial Legacy Society 2011-2021). Their generous support helps to advance Cleveland Clinic’s mission and honor a long tradition of excellence in education. Our founders introduced a distinctive clinical model in which practitioners from diverse fields of medicine could share their expertise and join together to act as a unit. Their willingness to invest in this vision not only ensured Cleveland Clinic’s survival, but also its success as a world-renowned medical institution. Contributing to the Alumni Legacy Society preserves this legacy and fuels Cleveland Clinic’s advancements in healthcare innovation, education and compassionate care, honoring our founders’ enduring vision.

As a cherished member of our Alumni family, you embody the core values of service, integrity, and compassion that define Cleveland Clinic. Your generosity perpetuates the enduring legacy of our founders, shaping the future of healthcare for generations to come.
