While Jefferson is an academic medical center, it is also a haven of hope serving the citizens of Philadelphia, the Delaware Valley and beyond. As a nonprofit, we rely on the support of our community to make our life-changing mission possible. This page is a directory of the many events organized by alumni, grateful patients and friends to benefit Jefferson.
