Planned Giving/Bequests

Planned giving comes in many forms, tailored to mutually benefit both you and the university. Some gifts provide financial and tax benefits for you and your heirs; others provide immediate tax deductions and capital gains savings or a stream of income for the donor’s life.


The School has numerous strategic endowments already in place that support a variety of initiatives, including programs, scholarships, and endowed faculty appointments. Your gifts to these endowment funds are invested by the University and held in perpetuity. Revenue generated is then used to support whatever area the endowment designates. A gift of $50,000 or more entitles you to establish your own named fund, and gifts can be pledged over five years. You can contribute any amount to already existing endowed funds established to support an array of disciplines within the School.


A gift of stocks and bonds to the School provides you with an income tax deduction based on the value of the securities at the time you make the gift. You avoid capital gains on the appreciated value of the securities and the School can immediately use the proceeds for the purpose you specify or for the general support of essential initiatives. 

The University of Michigan has 501(c)(3) non-profit tax exempt status. Our federal tax ID number is 38-6006309.
