Giving to Northwestern Comprehensive Center on Obesity

Our vision is to develop highly advanced prevention, detection, and treatment strategies for the obesity epidemic, which has global reach and consequence. Through the Northwestern Comprehensive Center on Obesity (NCCO), we are targeting all aspects of disease. Please join us as we endeavor to promote interdisciplinary research, education, and care in obesity and related fields.

Gifts from generous and committed individuals are often the catalysts in allowing medical research to flourish. To fulfill the center’s compelling charge, we are seeking support to endow the center, create endowed full and research professorships, establish research fellowships in obesity research, and provide funds to purchase laboratory equipment and instrumentation. We also are pursuing funds to support novel research projects at the center so that we can explore new ideas relating to obesity. 

For your convenience, a number of giving options are available. These include outright gifts, appreciated assets such as securities, and pledges payable over a three- to five-year period.
