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. The University’s first donor, George Merrick, was a great visionary and provided 160 acres for the campus along with a pledge of $5 million. In addition to the satisfaction that comes from knowing you have made a difference in the lives of others, 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.
