Education Resource Development Council

The Educational Resource Development Council (ERDC) is comprised of influential and philanthropic women within our community who are interested in learning about and promoting the latest advances and techniques in fields of health as they relate to University of Utah Health. Active members attend eight presentations a year and give a minimum of $1,000 annually to the ERDC Scholarship and Program Fund. These donations support student scholarships within the Colleges of Pharmacy, Nursing, Health; the School of Medicine; and the School of Dentistry. They also award funding for various projects and programs within the Health Sciences. The council consists of 60–80 women and has existed for more than 20 years.

Planned Giving

Many donors have made University of Utah Health a part of their estate plan by designating a planned gift through a will, life insurance policy, charitable remainder trust, charitable gift annuity, retirement fund, or other assets. We gratefully acknowledge these generous supporters and their exceptional gifts.

Employee Giving

As faculty and staff of the University of Utah, you are one of our most valuable resources. You are the backbone of the research, the teaching, the discovery and the future of the U. Internal giving is an important part of development, and by contributing to the Health Sciences Employee Giving Campaign, your passion can become reality.

We know you have a lot of choices when it comes to making charitable contributions. When you choose to donate to the University of Utah you not only invest in the future, you send a powerful message about our commitment to excellence. Your generous donations help build buildings, provide scholarships, retain top faculty, increase learning opportunities, and provide the necessary resources to research and teach at a higher level.

The best part about the employee giving campaign is that everyone can make an impact. It doesn’t matter if you can give $5 or $500 dollars, when we all come together for a cause, we can do great things.
