Planned Giving

The generosity of alumni and friends has nurtured the University of Miami since its very beginning, making possible extraordinary achievements in teaching, research, clinical care and public service. For almost a century, the University of Miami has been a beacon of hope and opportunity for South Florida, the nation, and the world. Planned gifts are vitally important in our quest for continued excellence and guarantee our long-term sustainability. But planned giving is not just beneficial for the University; it provides many more opportunities for taxwise giving and the satisfaction that comes from knowing you have made a difference in the lives of others. There's a planned gift for everyone, depending on your unique circumstances. The best gift plans improve your financial and tax situation- often right away. We can help you explore options that balance your philanthropic goals with your financial needs and tax-planning strategies- helping you plan for your future while allowing you to leave your legacy at the U.
