Helen Woodward Rivas Society
Hauptman-Woodward Medical Research Institute began as the Medical Foundation of Buffalo thanks to the generous gift of $3 million from Helen Woodward Rivas in 1956. It was her philanthropy that set the foundation of what is today HWI as we know it- an institute committed to science and transformative research through education, discovery and innovation.
We honor her legacy that we hopes to inspire others to make lasting gifts like hers with the Helen Woodward Rivas Society. The Rivas Society allows longtime supporters to designate HWI in their estate planning. A charitable bequest that is included in your will is a simple way to make a lasting gift to for future generations to come and the helps further the mission of HWI.
