Estate Planning

Did you know there are creative ways to support
Emergency Medicine at The University of Chicago?

You Need a Good Estate Plan!

A good estate plan will help you anticipate the future and manage the present. It is in your best interest and in the interest of your heirs to make sure that your intentions are clear.

Estate planning is usually not a do-it-yourself project. You’ll be faced with critical decisions that only a professional estate planner can help you make.

Simply defined, estate planning is the process of thoughtfully providing for the efficient transfer of your assets to your heirs and charitable interests in accordance with your wishes. It is a testament that affirms not only how your estate will be distributed, but also what kind of a legacy you will leave behind and the impact it will have for future generations.

Estate planning isn’t just for the rich or older people. Everyone should do it. It can begin with the simplicity of writing a will, but it can also involve trusts, changing beneficiaries of life insurance policies and retirement, selecting guardians for minor children, providing lifetime income for yourself and others, minimizing taxes and other estate settlement costs or passing on business interests and providing for your charitable interests.

Such giving techniques are called “planned gifts,” because with thoughtful planning, you create win-win solutions for you and Emergency Medicine at The University of Chicago.

What you can give after your lifetime:

  • Retirement Plan Assets
  • Savings Bonds
  • Life Insurance Benefits
  • Cash
  • Securities
  • Real Estate
  • Closely Held Stock

For more information, please visit Medical Center Development. Please refer to either “Emergency Medicine Alumni,” “Emergency Medicine Residency” or “Section of Emergency Medicine” when contributing.


Support Emergency Medicine at Work

Workplace giving in support of the EM program

The University of Chicago Emergency Medicine program welcomes gifts through workplace giving campaigns, employee matching gift programs and other special fundraising drives.

If you are a government, state, or local employee, or if your company conducts its own annual workplace giving drive, then designating The University of Chicago Emergency Medicine program to receive your workplace contributions is another important way to help support our initiatives and foci.

Employees of many companies and agencies may contribute to The University of Chicago Emergency Medicine program at their workplace. Please contact your human resources department to find out more details about campaign options, availability, time-frame and designation methods.

Matching Gifts: Many corporations will match their employees’ gifts to charitable organizations, effectively doubling or even tripling your charitable contribution. Donors should check with their human resources office regarding their matching gifts program and follow directions to initiate a match.

For more information about Matching Gifts, please visit Medical Center Development. Please refer to either “Emergency Medicine Alumni,” “Emergency Medicine Residency” or “Section of Emergency Medicine” when contributing.
