Planned Giving


Thank you for your investment in the mission of the University of Maryland Baltimore and the seven world-class schools that comprise our institution, the Schools of Medicine, Nursing, Dentistry, Law, Social Work, Pharmacy, and the Graduate School.

The Office of Planned Giving, within the Office of Philanthropy under VP Tom Sullivan and President Jay Perman, exists to facilitate giving for both donors and our development colleagues, and the UMB community at large, through advantageous giving options. We do this through promotion, education, engagement, advising, and executing internal actions related to giving to UMB and its seven schools.

In general, gifts to UMB are to the University of Maryland Baltimore Foundation, Inc. (UMBF). The Office of Planned Giving can assist with gifts to any school, program, designation, or fund at UMB and its schools. Our process is consultative, providing donors transparent and relevant information to their giving interests, and sharing colleagues' tools to assist donors in making the most mutually-advantageous gift. Our discussions are kept in confidence, and donors may give strictly anonymously with the support of our office.

To get started, first consider what you want to accomplish, and what is important to you.

You may already have a designation and use in mind, or you may know generally what you would wish to support, or you may desire to make an unrestricted gift for the immediate operating support of the institution or a particular school.
