In Memoriam Gifts

In memoriam gifts honor someone special. You are welcome to make a gift by credit card over the phone by contacting Terri Dillon at 312-503-4837. Unless you indicate otherwise, we will notify the honoree’s family about your contribution.

Stock Gifts

Stock gifts are donations of appreciated securities and allow the donor to avoid capital gains taxes. Donated stocks held for more than one year qualify for a tax deduction based on the fair market value of the stock.

Endowments and Named Gifts

Endowments and named gifts are permanent legacies that provide donor recognition and continual support for faculty, students and programs. Northwestern invests the principal of an endowment gift under the supervision of a group of investment professionals.

Planned Gifts

Planned gifts are made through wills and estate planning and help fund the future of cancer research and patient care. These gifts include bequests, charitable annuities, remainder trusts and life insurance and can feature periodic payment to you and your loved ones and provide donors with tax savings and other financial benefits.
