Our commitment to teaching began with our founding in 1905 and continues with the eight schools that make up Loma Linda University today. We believe integrating health, science and Christian faith prepares students to make an impact in the lives of those they serve. If you support these values, consider expressing that with a gift.  

We live to teach.

We are a renowned “teaching hospital” for a reason: Our passion to teach touches every interaction, from the university classroom to the hospital bedside. 

By meeting the greatest needs, our donors support the educational goals of our students. The areas of greatest need include:
