Combating COVID-19: Einstein’s Critical Response Research & Education Fund
A Critical Moment in Time
“Our long-standing partnership with Albert Einstein College of Medicine and Montefiore Medical Center is based on their unique ability to translate clinical practice into cutting-edge medical research and to effectively apply research findings to improve patient outcomes. The COVID-19 pandemic, which has hit the Bronx and Westchester particularly hard, provides an extraordinary and critical opportunity for Einstein and Montefiore to play a leadership role in treating and ultimately combating COVID-19.”

The COVID-19 pandemic represents an unprecedented time in our history, when society is looking to scientists and clinicians to lead the way by discovering and implementing new approaches to overcome this health crisis, prevent its recurrence, and provide more equitable care.
In response to the devastating impact of COVID-19—which has already killed hundreds of thousands throughout the world and thousands of patients in New York—Einstein has enlisted many of our outstanding investigators to redirect their expertise to research projects focused on ending the COVID-19 pandemic. Their efforts are informed by and conducted in collaboration with our faculty and colleagues at Montefiore, who are caring for COVID-19 patients with a calm determination, firm resolve, and unwavering dedication to saving lives.
By donating to the Einstein Critical Response Research & Education Fund, you support our greatest needs across the institution, with the primary focus on our research and education initiatives. Your contributions support the dedicated scientists at Einstein and clinicians at Montefiore and will allow them to make discoveries needed to end this pandemic and to provide life-saving treatments for COVID-19 patients.
Thanks to an inspirational matching gift challenge, the Price Family Foundation doubled every gift dollar-for-dollar until we successfully reached our $1 million goal at the end of June 2020. All matching gifts benefited research initiatives. For those who participated, your donation made twice the impact.
