Group of Students at Commencement


Thank you for your investment in the mission of the University of Maryland, Baltimore (UMB) and the seven highly ranked schools that comprise our institution, the schools of medicine, law, dentistry, pharmacy, nursing, social work, and our interdisciplinary Graduate School.

The Office of Planned Giving, within the UMB Office of Philanthropy under Interim Chief Philanthropy Officer, Senior Vice President, and Chief Enterprise and Economic Development Officer, James L. Hughes, CFRE, MS, and UMB Interim President Bruce E. Jarrell, MD, FACS, 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 colleagues tools to assist donors make the most mutually advantageous gift. Our discussions are kept in confidence, and donors may give anonymously with the support of our office.

Thank you for your interest, consideration, and support of the University of Maryland, Baltimore.
