Types of Gifts

There are four ways to support Wilmer through charitable giving: cash gifts, matching gifts, tribute giving, or gift planning.

Cash Gifts

Gifts of all sizes help the Wilmer Eye Institute to continue our ongoing efforts as a leader in innovative and compassionate treatment, groundbreaking research, and excellent ophthalmic medical education. Gifts made with a check or credit card provide immediate support to the Institute.

Contributions to the Wilmer Eye Institute can be unrestricted and used where the need is greatest. Gifts can also be designated to support a specific doctor. Gifts may also be made in memory of a loved one or to honor someone special in your life.

Gifts can be made outright or pledged over a period of up to five years. 

Matching Gifts

Many employers offer a matching gift program to their employees. For every dollar you donate to the Wilmer Eye Institute, your employer will match it either dollar for dollar, two dollars to one dollar, or, in more generous cases, three dollars to one dollar. All you need is a Matching Gift Form from your employer’s Public Affairs Department. Complete the section designated for employees and mail the form to us. We will take care of all the other details and paperwork. 

Tribute Giving

There are many opportunities to commemorate family members, friends, or colleagues on a birthday, anniversary, or another special occasion. Gifts can be made to the Wilmer Eye Institute in honor of a special physician, for example, who has played a significant role in your health. These gifts are greatly appreciated by the people being honored and their families.

A gift made to Wilmer in memory of a person who has passed away is a special way to honor a beloved friend or family member. Such a gift creates a legacy and memorializes the person by providing direct support to the Institute. 

Gift Planning

Gift planning allows our donors to thoughtfully choose ways of giving that meet their needs—and the needs of the Wilmer Eye Institute. A development officer from Wilmer and the Johns Hopkins Institutions, Office of Gift Planning can provide you with information on effective charitable planning options so that you can achieve optimum tax, financial, and philanthropic results.

Learn more about gift planning.

You may make your donation online, by mail, or by calling 410-955-2020.
