Friends, supporters and alumni like you ensure that the Center for Patient Partnerships can continue to transform lives. Here are a few of the ways to make an impact. If you have any questions or would like to talk to someone about your gift, please contact Kelly Douglas, our Development Director, at firstname.lastname@example.org or 608-890-0865.
Your sustaining monthly donation generates predictable income we can use to empower our clients through our free advocacy services and provide transformative educational curriculum to future doctors, lawyers, and other professionals. It’s the easiest way to give and ensure ongoing support for the Center, and you can opt out at any time. Together we can make a difference in the lives of our clients and students.
Your annual support is vital to sustain the Center’s core mission. Your gift helps us create innovative curriculum and share our passion for advocacy, resulting in a transformative experience for our students – and our clients. Your support also helps us amplify patients’ voices in health care policy debates and in research about advocacy, striving to ensure that all patients have access to the high quality, safe, affordable care that they deserve.
Gifts to annual funds provide flexible resources to support Center priorities, including attracting and retaining bright and talented faculty and providing scholarship support so the Center’s educational programs remain affordable for the future professionals that will shape our health care system.
At the leadership level of giving, you make a commitment to the Center for Patient Partnerships. And we make a commitment to you.
As a supporter whose annual gifts total $1,000 or more, you will receive exclusive communication from our Founding Director Meg Gaines, advance notice of publications and Center news, invitations to special events, recognition in our annual report and on our website. We’d be happy to work with you individually to invest your gift in the area of our mission that you feel most passionate about.
When you make a leadership gift to the Center, you are also recognized by the University of Wisconsin-Madison in its giving societies. Click here for more information on qualifying gifts through the University of Wisconsin Foundation.
Gifts that qualify for naming opportunities are a meaningful and lasting way to impact the clients, students and faculty at the Center for Patient Partnerships. The gift can serve as tribute to a loved one and recognize your investment in the future of health care.
Naming opportunities are available for endowed scholarships, endowed chairs, and other unrestricted endowments. There is also an opportunity to name the Center in perpetuity after you, your family or loved one.
For more information, please begin the conversation by contacting Kelly Douglas, Development Director at email@example.com or 608-890-0865.
Memorial or Honor Giving
Remembering a loved one or friend with a memorial gift to the Center for Patient Partnerships is an enduring tribute. Honor gifts are an opportunity to celebrate a loved one’s survivorship or a special occasion – a birthday, anniversary, wedding or recognize the courage of a friend who is fighting cancer or another life threatening illness.
When a memorial or honor gift is received, the Center will send a letter to the person or family indicated (if mailing or email address is provided) notifying them of your thoughtful donation, without revealing the amount of the donation.
Planned giving integrates your charitable gift into your overall financial, tax and estate planning to maximize benefits both to you and to the Center for Patient Partnerships. Through planned giving, you can multiply your gifts’ benefits and effects, such as furthering the mission of the Center.
Deferred gifts are those that are made in the present and received by the Center in the future. Some deferred gifts are straightforward, such as a bequest. Others are more complex, providing current tax benefits as well as income for the donor, a beneficiary, or both.
You can help ensure the future success of the Center for Patient Partnerships while leaving your legacy through planning your gift today. Depending on the arrangements you choose, you can also:
- Reduce your income taxes
- Avoid capital-gain tax
- Increase your spendable income
- Retain payments for life
For detailed questions or to plan your gift, the Center works with The Office of Gift Planning at the University of Wisconsin Foundation.
