Ways of Giving

You have the flexibility to make both deferred/planned gifts and outright gifts to the Department of Allied Health Sciences and to each of our divisions.


Planned or deferred giving enables you to arrange charitable contributions in a manner that maximizes your personal objectives while minimizing the after-tax cost. These gifts are called planned gifts because they are directly connected to your financial and/or estate plans. They are also called deferred gifts because, even though they are given today, the division will not realize their benefit until a future date. We separate deferred or planned gifts into two categories:

Life Income Gifts

  • Pooled income fund
  • Charitable gift annuity
  • Charitable remainder trust

Other Planned Gifts

  • Bequests
  • Charitable lead trust
  • Life insurance
  • Retirement plan assets

Life income gifts allow you to make a substantial gift to your division while still retaining the income for life produced by the asset. Other planned gifts may benefit you in your estate and financial planning.


Your outright gift will immediately advance the mission of our department and divisions. Outright gifts include:

  • Cash gifts
  • Matching gifts
  • Appreciated assets
  • Closely held stock
  • Real property
  • Personal property
  • Endowment gifts 

Please contact Director of Development for the Department of Allied Health Sciences, at 919.843.8443 or by email at  if you have any questions about making planned/deferred and outright gifts.
