We would be happy to talk to you, your lawyer or tax adviser about the advantages of making a gift of appreciated assets such as stocks or bonds—or other giving opportunities. Please contact Patrick Sanders, [email protected] for more information.

Payroll Deduction

Planned Gifts


A bequest is a gift to the George Washington University through your will or living trust. These gifts may be made in any amount and may be unrestricted to the Milken Institute School of Public Health or designated for a specific program or purpose.

Annuities and Life Income Gifts

If you would like to support the mission of the School and receive steady payments during your retirement years, a charitable gift annuity may be right for you. Through a simple contract, you agree to make a donation of cash, stocks or other assets to Milken Institute School of Public Health. In return, you receive (and someone else, if you choose) a fixed amount each year for the rest of your life. You may also designate the School as the beneficiary of your retirement plan or life insurance policy.

Real Estate

By donating real estate to GW, you can achieve peace of mind, create a lasting legacy, and receive financial benefits for yourself or someone else.  Depending on the nature of your gift and your objectives, you could avoid or reduce capital gains, estate or income taxes, eliminate the burden of maintaining a property, provide yourself with income and live in the property for the remainder of your life.

IRA Charitable Rollover

Donors aged 70½ or older arelikely to be eligible again in 2015 to move up to $100,000 from their IRAs directly to qualified charities without having to pay income taxes on the money  -- provided that Congress acts again prior to year-end as they have consistently done in recent years.
