The Thomas Gaiter Foundation, founded in 2009 by Dr. Thomas E. Gaiter, was created in response to the lack of support for educational and medical needs for disadvantaged youth.

Stemming from a personal background of financial struggle, Dr. Gaiter recognized that an innovative outreach approach had to be taken in order to fill the gap.

  As a nationally and internationally recognized foundation, our programs provide support to financially challenged students to acquire education and improve the quality of health in communities.


Dr. Thomas E. Gaiter was the Chief Medical Officer of Howard University Hospital and the Associate Dean for Clinical Affairs at Howard University, College of Medicine. He is a Fellow in the American Academy of Family Physicians as well as a member of The Alpha Omega Alpha Honor Medical Society. Dr. Gaiter received his medical degree at Meharry Medical College, where he was the Executive Vice President of the Pre-Alumni Council. He received a Bachelors Degree from Tennessee State University, where he was a member of Alpha Mu Gamma Honor Society. Dr. Gaiter is certified by the District of Columbia Licensure Board.
