Types of Gifts

There are four ways to support the Department of Neurosurgery through charitable giving: cash gifts, matching gifts, memorial giving, or gift planning.

Cash gifts

Gifts of all sizes help the Department of Neurosurgery to continue our ongoing efforts as a leader in compassionate care and innovative research for patients and their families. Gifts made with a check or credit card provide immediate support to the Department.

Contributions to the Department of Neurosurgery can be unrestricted and used where the need is greatest. Gifts can also be designated to support a specific doctor or program. Gifts can 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 Department of Neurosurgery, 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.

Memorial giving

There are many ways to commemorate family members, friends, or colleagues on a birthday, anniversary, or another special occasion. Gifts made to the Department of Neurosurgery 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 Neurosurgery in memory of a person who has passed away is a special way to honor a beloved friend of 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 Department of Neurosurgery. A development officer with the Department 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 443-287-7942.
