Types of Gifts

There are four ways to support the Department of Gynecology and Obstetrics through charitable giving: cash gifts/gifts of securities, matching gifts, tribute giving or gift planning.

Cash Gifts/Gifts of Securities

Gifts of all sizes help the Department of Gynecology and Obstetrics continue our ongoing efforts as a leader in innovative and compassionate treatment, groundbreaking research, and excellent surgical medical education. Gifts made with a check or credit card provide immediate support to the department.

Contributions to the Department of Gynecology and Obstetrics can be unrestricted and used where the need is greatest. Gifts also can be designated to support a specific doctor, researcher or division. Additionally, you can make a gift 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 Department of Gynecology and Obstetrics, 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 Department of Gynecology and Obstetrics 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 the Department of Gynecology and Obstetrics 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 department.

Gift Planning

Gift planning allows our donors to thoughtfully choose ways of giving that meet their needs—and the needs of the Division of Gynecology and Obstetrics. A development director from the Division of Gynecology and Obstetrics can provide you with information on effective charitable planning options so that you can achieve optimum tax, financial, and philanthropic results.
