Outright and Endowment Gifts
Gifts of a larger size can be allocated to a specific area within the school and are critical to our key initiatives and projects.
Planned gifts include: assets other than cash or securities; life income gifts through which your assets are transferred while you or a designated recipient retain the income; bequests; and charitable lead trusts through which you save on income, gift, and estate taxes. Once you’ve made your planned gift, you’ll be a member of the Whiting School’s Legacy Society.
Beyond annual support, your reunion gift will make a significant capital or endowment contribution to celebrate your milestones as a Hopkins alumnus.
Gifts of Securities
Gifts of securities are a popular alternative to cash gifts because they double your tax benefit. In addition to providing an income tax deduction, the donor also avoids tax on the capital gains realized from the gifted property.
The Hopkins Parents Fund is a gift-giving program for parents of undergraduate students. Parents' support has made a significant contribution to Hopkins’ position as an international leader in higher education and student life initiatives.
Foundations support a range of activities—programs, research, and fellowships that benefit the Whiting School and satisfy the objectives of each foundation.
Corporate Giving and Partnerships
Our corporate partners share in and support the school’s growth and success while advancing their own initiatives through their access to the school’s research, faculty, and prospective employees. Some of the many ways companies can be involved with the Whiting School include support for scholarships, fellowships, endowed faculty chairs, infrastructure and capital improvements, program and research support, sponsored design projects, in-kind gifts, and matching gifts.
