Areas of Greatest Need

MAKE A GIFT

Recruitment and Infrastructure Fund

To build upon the McGowan Institute’s remarkable success and make the greatest future impact, we turn our focus to recruiting students into our unique environment to make meaningful clinical advances and to teach and train the next generation of scientists. Gifts in this area will be used to recruit, expand lab footprints and acquire needed equipment and other tools.

MAKE A GIFT

Endowed Funds

Endowed funds are named funds that provide a perpetual stream of income for a specific purpose or for students within a particular area. Whether these gifts are for scholarships, fellowships, faculty chairs, or other important programs or services, they allow major gift donors to provide permanent support to the Institute. Minimum endowment levels guarantee that sufficient income will be available to fulfill the donor’s specific intentions.

MAKE A GIFT

Current Funds

Unlike endowed funds, current funds can be distributed in the same year they are received. They are a terrific alternative for those who might have excess funds available each year and ideal for annual IRA disbursements or lump-sum gifts.

MAKE A GIFT

Planned Giving

Planned Giving options allow you to amplify the impact of your generosity to the University of Pittsburgh, potentially create lifetime income streams and reduce your taxes. You can leave a legacy through bequests, retirement plans and life insurance.
