Establish an Endowment

Making an endowed gift will insure that your impact will be felt for generations to come. Endowed gifts are invested, with the generated income used to fund the program you choose. This means that the principal is never touched, but continues to grow over time to generate a steady, reliable source of income in perpetuity. For this reason, many donors choose to name endowments to create a personal legacy or honor a family member. Click here for additional information on endowment minimums.

Planned Giving
When you make a gift to UW Medicine through your will, trust or retirement plan, you’re making an investment in the future of vision research, patient care, and training. Planned gifts offer creative, flexible strategies for your estate and charitable planning. Some even provide you with income. Many can reduce your taxes.
