Your Benefits

Maximize your deduction; minimize the gift details

Use cash to make your gift to University Hospitals

Claim your deduction against a larger portion of your adjusted gross income, and make an immediate impact on University Hospitals.

Afford a larger gift to UH — and avoid capital gains liability

Give appreciated stock or bonds held over one year

Buy low and give high — make a gift that costs you less than the benefit it delivers to us, while avoiding capital gains tax

Make a gift for UH's future that doesn't affect your cash flow or portfolio now

Put a bequest in your will (cash, specific property, or a share of the estate residue or a designation in your retirement plan or life insurance policy)

Today — a gift that costs you and your family nothing. Tomorrow — tax benefits

Retain income benefits from the assets you give to UH - thus afford a larger gift.

A larger deduction and a higher income rate than other life-income gifts offer

Tap one of the most valuable assets in your portfolio to make a gift that benefits UH

Create a charitable lead trust which supports programs at UH for a fixed, finite period with the principal going to your heirs

Reduce gift and estate taxes, and freeze the taxable value of growing assets before they pass to your family

Avoid capital gains liability on the transfer of a business or partnership interest

Contribute the partnership interest or business interest to UH

Avoid capital gain liability, receive an income tax deduction, and use a gift asset you may have overlooked

Locate an overlooked asset that you can easily give to UH
