More Ways to Give

There are a lot of options for leaving a legacy.

In addition to wills, beneficiary designations, gift annuities, and remainder trusts, there are a number of other ways to make a lasting impact at the Dean McGee Eye Institute.

IRA Charitable Rollover – If you are 70 ½ years old or older, you can give up to $100,000 from your IRA directly to a qualified charity such as the Dean McGee Eye Institute without having to pay income taxes on the money.

Real Estate – Making a gift of appreciated property can help avoid capital gains tax and provide you a federal income tax charitable deduction while benefiting the DMEI Foundation.

Endowed Gifts – Your legacy can last in perpetuity when you make a gift to our endowment. Such gifts are invested and a portion of the investment proceeds are used to support the work of DMEI on an ongoing basis, and endowment gifts can be combined with tribute or naming opportunities to enhance your legacy.

Charitable Lead Trusts – Don’t want to lose control of your assets but want the DMEI Foundation to benefit from them? A charitable lead trust allows you to do just that. Assets are placed in a trust and are used to make payments to the DMEI Foundation for a certain period of time, after which trust assets are paid back to you or another non-charitable beneficiary.

Memorials and Tribute Gifts – A gift given in the name of a loved one is a meaningful way to honor or memorialize them while supporting the work of DMEI.
