Planned Giving

Plan a gift today to change the lives of patients tomorrow.

When you plan a gift to the Myeloma Institute through long-term estate or financial planning, you partner with us in continuing our legacy of innovative research and excellent patient care.

The Legacy Society recognizes  individuals who choose to make a planned gift for the benefit of the Myeloma Institute. We are especially pleased to recognize these individuals during their lifetimes and honor their generosity.  Explore the planned gift options that best meet your needs and goals. Planned gifts have helped and continue to fund many of the advances in treatment that are available to patients today. Your planned gift will ensure a more hopeful future for tomorrow’s patients.

Stocks and Mutual Funds

A gift of securities, including stocks or mutual funds, is an easy way to make a gift. By making a gift of your appreciated securities, you can avoid paying capital gains tax that would otherwise be due if you sold these assets.

Retirement Plans

You might consider using assets in your retirement account to fund your gift.  At your passing, beneficiaries of your retirement account are required to pay income tax (which could be at a rate as high as 40%) on the assets gifted to them. However, all assets that pass from a retirement account to charity are distributed free from tax.

Real Estate

Property (such as your home, vacation property, vacant land, farmland, ranch or commercial property) can be gifted.If you own appreciated property, you can avoid paying capital gains tax by making a gift to the Myeloma Institute.

Gifts of Insurance

If your life insurance policy is no longer needed or will no longer benefit your survivors, consider making a gift and helping further our mission.  You can also designate us as the beneficiary of your life insurance policy.  A gift of your life insurance allows you to receive a charitable income tax deduction.
