Giving to the Veterinary Medical Center

Thank you for your support!

Providing specialty care and innovative research for over a century, the University of Minnesota Veterinary Medical Center (VMC) is recognized globally for offering the most advanced, cutting-edge care for large and small animals in the region and beyond.

The VMC is a not-for-profit teaching hospital and receives less than 10 percent of its annual operating budget from government funding. The philanthropic support of our clients, alumni, and friends allows us to continue to invest in the technology and resources needed to care for our patients, make new discoveries in veterinary medicine, and train the next generation of veterinarians. You can make a difference in the Veterinary Medical Center by investing in our future.
