Giving Priorities

Our Vision for the Future Is Clear

Cleveland Clinic dedicated the last century to transforming healthcare for patients around the world. We will spend the next century tackling the toughest challenges of today and tomorrow, developing the boldest ideas and providing the most innovative solutions to change even more lives.

Your support will play an essential role in helping us advance medical research, expand health education and improve our communities. The next 100 years look bright because of donors like you.

The Cleveland Clinic Brain Study

The Cleveland Clinic Brain Study is a first-of-its-kind, 20-year neurological research project aimed at predicting, preventing and treating neurodegenerative diseases, such as Alzheimer’s disease, multiple sclerosis, Parkinson’s and epilepsy. The study will track biomarkers in the brains and bodies of at-risk individuals — before symptoms appear and before a diagnosis is made. This long-term initiative will enlist physicians, scientists and researchers from across Cleveland Clinic’s global health system. It will compile decades of data from up to 200,000 participants and give us the information we need to find a cure.

A New Neurological Institute

The future Neurological Institute on our main campus in Cleveland will bring together clinical care and research programs that are currently spread across eight facilities. Our new, one-million-square-foot, consolidated building will significantly streamline research and patient care. It will expand digital distance health services to reach tens of thousands of patients dealing with neurological disorders.

The Cleveland Innovation District

The Cleveland Innovation District will give scientists, clinicians and students the space and resources they need to translate discoveries into real-world solutions for patients. It will create research-based jobs, provide career development opportunities for healthcare professionals, and feature leading-edge facilities and technology. The project also includes the addition of the Fairfax Market, a 40,000-square-foot grocery market and 196 apartment units for the benefit of the surrounding community.

A Nursing Workforce for Today and Tomorrow

Nursing is one of the most essential professions in the world. As healthcare providers face unprecedented need nationally, we invite you to partner with us to implement, scale and accelerate proven initiatives that will help us recruit, retain and care for our nurses the way they care for our patients. Cleveland Clinic is a dynamic and technologically advanced environment where nurses learn, grow and remain professionally challenged as they shape their nursing careers. You can help us attract and educate the nurses of tomorrow, and retain and develop the nurses of today.

Prevention of the World's #1 Killer: Heart Disease

Our first century of care focused on treating acute cardiovascular conditions and saving lives hanging in the balance. Now we are intent on understanding why people develop cardiovascular disease and knowing how to prevent it from ever happening at all.

The CEO Transformation Fund

The CEO Transformation Fund provides resources for CEO Tom Mihaljevic, MD, to be creative, nimble and proactive in working to meet current and emergent needs of patients across our global health system. Gifts of all sizes to the fund collectively impact Cleveland Clinic's mission to care, research and educate.

The Global Charitable Care Fund for Children

The Global Charitable Care Fund for Children ensures families around the world can focus on caring for their sick child, not the burden of financial resources. The Fund pays for the transportation, lodging and care expenses for a family when their child requires specialized treatment offered at Cleveland Clinic. Priority is given to families in need from war-torn and developing countries.
