Loyal Companion Society: What inspires you to give?

Giving to Cummings School year after year as a Loyal Companion makes me feel good. It is clear that as an academic veterinary medical center, the staff at Foster Hospital have access to treatments that are not readily available elsewhere and the veterinary students are able to learn about them.

The Art of Loving Animals

The Animal Lover, the bronze sculpture that stands outside the new entrance to the Henry and Lois Foster Hospital for Small Animals, aptly describes its creator, Merrilyn Delano Marsh.

A powerful gift, for the animals we love

“I support Cummings School because they share my dedication to animals, and I know that the care they provide is second to none."

- Linda Swedo
Cummings Veterinary Fund Donor since 2006

By giving to the Cummings Veterinary Fund, you too can support Cummings School's commitment to veterinary medicine, education, and research for the animals we all love.

Generosity in Action: A Cause Worthy of Your Support

In practice and in philosophy, we are committed to healing animals, helping humans and transforming global health.

We would not achieve this important mission without philanthropy, which has played a catalyzing role at Cummings School of Veterinary Medicine from the beginning. As New England’s veterinary school, Cummings School plays a vital role in the health and wellbeing of animals and humans in the region, as well as inspiring and preparing the next era of leaders in veterinary medicine.

While other schools receive substantial public funding, Cummings School relies more heavily on private philanthropy. Your partnership makes an important difference.
