Giving to medicine and health at the University of Minnesota

Leave a legacy for future generations

Your annual gifts to the Minnesota Medical Foundation at the University of Minnesota make a real difference for people suffering from heart and blood vessel diseases.

You can continue to make annual gifts after your lifetime as well by including the Minnesota Medical Foundation in your estate plans. The income generated from your endowed gift will allow you to continue to help advance world-class medical research, education, and care at the University.

For example, if you’re making an annual gift of $500 to the Lillehei Heart Institute today, an endowed gift of $10,500 in your estate plan would provide the same amount of support ever year after your lifetime in perpetuity.

Endowed gifts can be made through a bequest in your will or living trust or by naming the Minnesota Medical Foundation as the beneficiary of your retirement plan or life insurance policy.

For sample bequest language or to speak to a gift planning officer, contact the Minnesota Medical Foundation’s Office of Gift Planning at 612-625-1440 or 800-922-1663, or find more information at
