Planned Giving


A planned gift is a contribution that is arranged in the present and allocated at a future date. Commonly donated through a will or trust, planned gifts are most often granted once the donor has passed away. At Duke, donors can make a planned gift to benefit the cancer clinician from whom they received care. Donors may choose to give a gift of:

  • real estate
  • life income gift
  • charitable remainder trust,
  • pooled income fund gift
  • charitable gift annuity
  • charitable lead trust
  • bequest
  • life income gift
  • gift from a retirement plan upon death
