Fueling the Future of Medicine

The TGen Women’s Philanthropy Council is committed to advancing TGen’s research by harnessing the power of our unified influence, energy and resources. Our mission is to fuel philanthropic investment in ground-breaking scientific discoveries and the acceleration of these discoveries into the clinic, to improve patient outcomes and save lives.

The TGen Women’s Philanthropy Council aims to provide members with value and meaning through collective learning and action. 

Throughout the year, council members expand their personal knowledge and proficiency in precision medicine across a broad spectrum of diseases and disorders. The council provides a platform for members to build friendships and dynamic relationships with a diverse group of like-minded women and TGen’s scientific community - helping to bridge the gap between science, medicine and our community. Furthermore, council members help shape the future of medicine by funding ground-breaking scientific discoveries and the acceleration of these discoveries into the clinic, to improve patient outcomes and save lives.

Your minimum annual investment of $2,000 goes into a pool of funds for maximum impact. Members select TGen programs or projects to fund through an annual voting process. Funds will not be awarded the inaugural year as we build out membership.
