Estate and Gift Planning

Help the University of Miami meet the challenges of tomorrow by leaving a legacy today.

Our web site is designed to introduce alumni, friends, faculty, and staff to planned giving - one of the most powerful philanthropic tools available to the University's benefactors. Making a gift to the University through a bequest or other planned gift ensures that the University can continue to carry out its mission of education, research and public service well into the future.

What is Estate and Gift Planning? Estate and gift planning helps you maximize the personal benefits of your charitable giving, and allows you to make gifts you might have thought impossible. Through advantageous tax treatment under both state and federal law, planned giving is a way to make a gift and also enjoy the benefits of these laws.

The pages on this website are intended to provide general information only, not legal or tax advice about specific situations. Establishing a planned gift within your financial circumstances and estate planning requires careful thought and consideration upon consultation with your own attorney, accountant, or financial advisor. Our staff is available to work with you and your advisor(s) in confidence and with no obligation to help you explore the best possible method of planned giving based on your circumstances.

“To place your name by a gift or bequest in keeping of an active educational institution is to…make a permanent contribution to the welfare of humanity.” -- Calvin Coolidge
