Types of Gifts

There are four ways to support the Department of Psychiatry and Behavioral Science through charitable giving: cash gifts, matching gifts, tribute giving, or gift planning.

Cash gifts

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

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

If you are designating memorial gifts to honor a beloved friend or family member please contact the Development Office at 410-955-8159. We are pleased to help determine the appropriate use of memorials gifts, to send acknowledgments and provide you with names and addresses of donors. Here is information for publication; thank you for your thoughtfulness. Gifts in memory of (honoree name) may be directed to support (program or physician name) at Johns Hopkins Department of Psychiatry and Behavioral Sciences. Please make checks payable to Johns Hopkins Medicine and mail to Hopkins Medicine, Attn: Psychiatry, PO Box 49143, Baltimore, MD 21297-9143 or make a gift online. Please indicate the honoree in the memo or notes.

Gift planning

Gift planning allows our donors to thoughtfully choose ways of giving that meet their needs—and the needs of the Department of Psychiatry. A development director from 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.
