FORT WORTH – The Anne Burnett Marion School of Medicine at Texas Christian University was awarded more than $45 million in philanthropic support thanks to a challenge grant from the Amon G. Carter Foundation.
In December 2022, Fort Worth’s Amon G. Carter Foundation “challenged” the Burnett School of Medicine to secure $30 million in new gifts and pledges by May 31, 2023, offering a $15 million additional grant if the challenge was achieved.
With the help of Fort Worth and TCU communities, the challenge was met, resulting in more than $45 million in philanthropic support for the Burnett School of Medicine at TCU.
The gifts will help expand the pool of student scholarships, bolster programs addressing student well-being, fund student research programs, and enhance the clinical training of the school’s medical students. The Carter Challenge grant will also add support to core student programs and technology needs, underpinning the innovations that fuel the Burnett School’s growing national reputation.
