Winship Cancer Institute

The wise heart seeks knowledge. This sentiment—the translation of Emory’s motto, Cor prudentis possidebit scientiam—informs our core missions of education, discovery, health care, and public service. Acknowledging that our accomplishments are possible only with the generous support of our donors, Emory has named our new leadership annual giving society The Wise Heart Society.

Leaders take action, create change, and inspire others. As a member of The Wise Heart Society, you take the lead among Emory’s most influential annual supporters. Your past support of Winship Cancer Institute underscores your commitment to the important research being conducted here. Leadership-level annual gifts to Winship are particularly valuable for providing early funding for promising young researchers, speeding up the process of moving new treatments from the lab to the patients, and promoting collaboration among researchers around the world. The next great discovery can happen at any time—and it’s likely that private funding will play a role in the process. Your continuing support of Winship at Emory gives our researchers the means to think boldly and pursue novel approaches to preventing, treating, and curing cancer.

Thank you for your ongoing partnership with Winship and for your confidence in what we can accomplish together.
