Planned Giving


Thank you for taking a moment to visit the University of Maryland Baltimore's planned giving website. If you’re interested in learning about some of the creative ways to support our work, click on one of the menu items to the left. You’ll be linked to easy-to-understand passages that explain the concept you’ve selected.

The University of Maryland Baltimore Foundation, Inc. (UMBF) accepts private donations on behalf of the University of Maryland Schools of Medicine, Dentistry, Law, Nursing, Pharmacy, Social Work, the Health Sciences and Human Services Library, and the Dr. Samuel D. Harris National Museum of Dentistry.

Generally speaking, planned gifts represent gift options that can be designed to meet your personal philanthropic and financial goals. Some planned gifts, such as a gift in your will, require no current outlay of funds at all. And other planned gifts, including the charitable gift annuity, make it possible to support our work, enjoy a tax deduction if you itemize, and receive a lifetime income at the same time.

In this unpredictable and challenging economic climate, a planned gift can be a rewarding way to make a difference in others’ lives. Please contact us if we can provide more information or help you in any way.
