Giving Opportunities

Gifts of cash, stock and personal property are ways in which your gift today will benefit Rosalind Franklin University of Medicine and Science and may also provide you with tax benefits. Please consult with your attorney or financial advisor for information on current tax laws.

Cash Gifts – The easiest and quickest way to show your appreciation for the University and make an immediate impact.

Stock Gifts – Gifts of stock in either a publicly traded or closely held company offer the donor the advantage of avoiding capital gains tax on the appreciation in market value of the shares.

Gifts of Property – Gifts of real estate may provide an ideal way for you to make a contribution by making a larger gift at a reduced cost. Other gifts of property that may offer tax deductibility such as: Art, personal collections, equipment, will depend on the appraised value and how the gift will be used by the university.

For more information on gifts of stock and gifts of property, please look at the University's Gift Acceptance Policy or contact the Office of Institutional Advancement at 847-578-8391or
