Ways of giving
Gifts to LMC may be designated as either expendable or endowed. An expendable fund means that the principal is used for the purpose designated by the donor. This type of giving is an excellent way for you to make an immediate impact in areas such as student financial aid and research.
An endowed fund is a permanent source of support. Such gifts are invested by Lorma to generate annual income, and a portion of the return on the fund is used to support the purpose chosen by the donor. The balance of interest and the appreciation remains in the fund so that the principal continues to grow and keep pace with inflation.
The permanence of an endowed fund, and your ability to name the fund after anyone you choose, makes this type of giving an excellent vehicle for honoring or memorializing someone important to you. Learn more about Endowment Gift Opportunities.
Transferring appreciated marketable stock to Lorma is a good option if you wish to support an area of medical research while reducing your tax bill. Individuals who transfer stock can receive a charitable tax deduction and avoid capital gains tax.
Planned gifts include a variety of gifts with special tax implications, including gifts through your estate (in your will or revocable trust) and life income gifts. Life income gifts allow you to transfer assets now (cash, securities, or real estate) and receive income for a period of time with the remainder going to Lorma.
By including Lorma Medical Center in your financial planning, you provide a gift that will live on and benefit future generations.
