Planned Giving

Detailing Your Support

A growing number of alumni and friends choose to support patient care, research, and education at UVA through financial or estate planning. This process is known as gift planning, and the gifts are referred to as planned gifts:

  • Plans from your estate
    Bequests are gifts established through estate plans. These plans include wills or living trusts, retirement plans, and life insurance.
  • Plans that pay you an income
    You make a gift to UVA and receive income for your life or for the lives of the beneficiaries you choose. These plans include charitable gift annuities and charitable remainder trusts.
  • Plans that help the University now and your family later
    The University uses the income from a gift you make for a specified period of time, and then returns the remainder to you or your heirs. This plan is called a charitable lead trust.
