Legacy Giving

Make an important difference in the lives of youth by including The Medical Institute in your estate planning.

MI needs the ongoing support and generosity of individuals to continue its important work, and to ensure lasting change in our youth and one of the most vulnerable decisions in their lives.

Include MI in your estate plans. No gift is too small. You can designate gifts of cash, property, securities, or other types of bequests in your last will and testament. In conjunction with your final wishes, any charitable donation made through your estate planning will serve to support The Medical Institute for Sexual Health and our programs.

Leaving a gift to charity in your will may reduce the estate tax burden on your heirs significantly. You should consult with a financial advisor or attorney to learn how giving may actually benefit your family after you’re gone.
