Shine On Surpasses $35M

Northeast Ohio Medical University has reached a major milestone for Shine On: The Campaign for Northeast Ohio Medical University.

The University has raised more than $35 million in support toward its $40 million goal as part of Shine On, with gifts made through the NEOMED Foundation.

Shine On, which began with a quiet phase in 2013, launched publicly in December 2015 with a campus celebration. More than 2,600 donors have contributed to the campaign, which aims to advance students, innovation and research, and community heath.

 “We have been overwhelmed by the generosity of so many in our extended NEOMED community – alumni, faculty and staff, board members and other friends of the University, foundations and companies. This success is a testament to the quality of our students and graduates, the vital work of our faculty in teaching and research, and the role NEOMED plays advancing community health throughout Northeast Ohio and beyond,” said Daniel S. Blain, Vice President of Advancement and President of the NEOMED Foundation.

Gifts made during the Shine On campaign have provided a range of new campus facilities and technology, created scholarships to eliminate some of the financial burden faced by our students, and advanced research taking place on campus. Join us in celebrating this milestone and learning more about how our faculty, staff, students and community have made an impact through the Shine On campaign.
