Meaningful Gift

As the anatomy faculty for Elon University, no gift could possibly be more meaningful to us than the gift you are contemplating today. Each of us has found the anatomic donors we work alongside in our lab to be the best teachers our students can possibly have. We see firsthand when students begin to realize not just the academic “correct answers” about bones, nerves, muscles and organs, but the holistic understanding of the human body, and in fact the human condition. We watch generated curiosity through discoveries of aspects related to clinical knowledge, the development of empathy, the wonder of realization, and the beautiful understanding that everything in human existence is connected and related. These understandings are at the heart of what makes a truly good caregiver or health scientist, and our students have these skills and graces because of people like you. Thank You.

Other Ways to Give

Thank you for considering Elon University’s Anatomical Gift Program. We are deeply appreciative of our magnanimous registrants and “silent teachers” and their timeless gift toward healthcare education.

In addition to the benevolent gift of one’s body after death, everyone has the opportunity to make a different type of gift, a gift to the Anatomical Gift Program Memorial Garden, if you so desire. In this way, you will help us honor all who have nobly donated their bodies to further the education of our future healthcare providers. To give directly to the Anatomical Gift Program Memorial Garden fund, click here and select “Anatomical Gift Program Memorial Garden” from the designated dropdown menu. Your anticipated gift is deeply appreciated by all of us at Elon’s Anatomical Gift Program and our dedicated graduate students in healthcare!
