Dear alumni and friends,
Planned gifts provide the resources that create extraordinary opportunities for our faculty and students and can help to shape the future of the UNC-Chapel Hill Division of Clinical Laboratory Science. A planned gift may enable you to make a more significant gift than you thought possible while at the same time allowing you to achieve your financial, philanthropic and estate planning goals.
Our program has benefited from supporters like Miss Louise Ward, our founding director, who made a bequest to the program several years ago that created the Louise M. Ward CLS Scholarship fund, the Ward Teaching Excellence Award Fund, and the Ward Program Development endowment—all three permanent endowed funds that will support our core mission in perpetuity.
To that end, we created new web resources offering multiple giving options from naming UNC Chapel Hill Division of Clinical Laboratory Science as a beneficiary in your will to funding a charitable gift annuity that will provide you and loved ones income for life while making a significant gift to our program. The following links provide more information about the planned giving vehicles that are available to make a gift to our programs:

When you name the UNC-Chapel Hill Division of Clinical Laboratory Science in your estate plans, we know that you include us in a special group of family, friends, and organizations that you hold dear, and we are very grateful. Please contact our development director Kyle Gray (919-966-3352 or firstname.lastname@example.org) or me (919-966-3033 or email@example.com) if you have any questions.
