Support our Mission - Ways of Giving
Outright gifts provide the Division of Otolaryngology with crucial support for all of its programs and activities - from research to clinical care. The simplest way to make an outright gift is to write a check to Division of Otolaryngology. Cash is always a great way to give and may be 100% deductible with the IRS depending upon your personal circumstances.
Gifts of Endowment
A gift of endowment demonstrates your commitment to the Division well into the future. The Gift is invested and maintained by Otolaryngology in perpetuity and the income earned is used to support the purposes specified by the donor. Over time, an endowment fund grows and provides lasting and significant support for the Division’s work.
Tangible gifts such as property, art objects, and equipment can be donated to the Division for educational purposes or resale.
Life income gifts, bequests, and gifts of life insurance provide important support for general endowments, building projects, equipment, education, and research. Life income gifts offer many advantages to donors, including income for life or for the term of the trust, income for a second beneficiary, and reduction in income, gift, or estate taxes.
You can support the Division of Otolaryngology by making a provision for us in your will. Bequests of cash, securities, real property, or other assets to the Division provide tax advantages.
Many companies offer matching gift programs that allow their employees to effectively match, double, or triple their gifts to the Division of Otolaryngology. Consult your employer to find out if they participate in matching gift programs and whether they would join you in supporting Otolaryngology.
Stocks, mutual funds, bonds, and other securities given to the Division may provide a considerable savings in capital-gains taxes for the donor.
The Division offers benefactors the opportunity to contribute named gifts that serve as an enduring reminder of their special commitment to Otolaryngology. Gifts may also be contributed in honor or memory of loved ones and friends.
