Planned Giving

The UMMS Foundation is grateful for the many gifts it has received over the years from grateful patients and friends through their estate plans. These gifts have supported capital projects, cutting-edge research, continuing education programs and much more. They come to UMMS Foundation by way of bequests or as life income gifts. With thoughtful planning, you can create win-win solutions for you and UMMS Foundation by making a planned gift.

You may be able to reduce or eliminate income taxes, capital gains taxes and transfer taxes, such as gift, estate, inheritance and generation-skipping taxes, while helping UMMS provide for the health of our community, now and in the future.
