Empower 2021 Donor Impact Report Cover

A well-deserved ‘thank you’ for your support and generosity

Dear Supporters and Friends of Baylor College of Medicine:

For more than a century, Baylor has benefited from a generous community of donors. Your gifts of time, energy and resources help drive Baylor’s success in biomedical education, medical discovery and patient care to build a healthier world for us all. It is my honor to acknowledge your accomplishments in this inaugural EMPOWER Donor Impact Report.

Last year proved to be another challenging one with the ongoing pandemic, but you can take pride in knowing that Baylor was a national leader in responding to the pandemic with your support and advocacy. We increased patient services through the opening of a new Post COVID Care Clinic, a multidisciplinary Spine Center and a Center for Alzheimer’s and Neurodegenerative Diseases. We grew academic initiatives by awarding six pilot grants to education innovation projects and put plans in place to open a regional school of medicine campus in Temple, Texas, in 2023. We received more than $600 million for new research and invested in new technology to combat cancer, enhance surgery and bolster drug discovery.

Through your vision and confidence in our people and programs, we are able to leverage your generous philanthropy and the brightest minds in healthcare to create a new era of medicine that unites science, education and clinical care. This report highlights what you made possible in 2021. Thank you for your support to achieve our vision of improving health through science, scholarship and innovation.
