Sustaining Gift

To make the most immediate impact with your gift, we would like you to consider making your donation to SCCM a sustaining gift. All sustaining gifts will allow the Society’s leadership to direct funding to areas in which need is most acute.

Program Areas 

The Society is grateful for all donations. You may direct your donation to one of the following essential programs, each of which focuses on improving care in the intensive care unit (ICU) around the world.

Training in Resource-Limited Areas

Assist individuals and organizations delivering care in resource-limited areas. Your donation will provide materials and financial support for faculty and students who receive training through SCCM, including through the highly regarded Fundamentals courses.

A gift of just $25 provides a student with all the training materials needed to improve their critical care practice.

Disaster Relief

Help SCCM respond quickly when critical care is severely impacted by a natural or man-made disaster anywhere in the world. Your gift allows SCCM and our members to be on the front lines providing services, volunteers, and essential ICU medical supplies and equipment to those impacted when disaster strikes. Donations also allow SCCM to contribute humanitarian items needed by patients and their families when traditional supply lines are disrupted, including hygiene products, diapers, formula, clothing, blankets, and more.


Help secure future advances in the ICU for patients by supporting SCCM’s research programs. Researchers are at the forefront of advancing knowledge that can be applied to treat disease, improve quality of care, and enhance patient experiences and outcomes. Your donation helps increase SCCM’s research in critical care and supports a broad range of projects, including research grants to young investigators, expansion of advanced research grants, and endowment of the SCCM-Weil Research Trust.

Quality Improvement and Patient Safety

Support SCCM in improving quality and patient safety for the critically ill. Patient safety is the cornerstone of SCCM’s quality improvement projects. A gift today benefits quality implementation projects such as the ICU Liberation initiative and guideline development.


Your Donations in Action

With reports of COVID-19 outbreaks in Brazil and India in May, SCCM responded quickly to provide much-needed medical supplies. Oxygen concentrators are among the most critical items needed to treat patients with severe COVID-19, who often arrive at hospitals with extreme hypoxemia.

In partnership with Direct Relief, SCCM shipped 200 portable oxygen concentrators to SOMITI Belo Horizonte in Minas Gerais, Brazil.

Plans are also underway to deliver an estimated 10,000 oxygen concentrators and other requested medical supplies to India. Healthcare leaders in India have estimated the need for 200,000 oxygen concentrators; however, rising numbers of COVID-19 cases have caused many local manufacturing plants to shut down, resulting in severe shortages of oxygen throughout the country as well. SCCM is also working with other organizations and leaders in India to deploy more supplies, including more concentrators.
