Ways to Give


We're grateful for your support.

We offer many giving options to suit your goals, and offer assistance to you at any step in the process. Learn more about our giving options below.

Recognize Great Care

Showing gratitude for great care through generosity is a thoughtful way to ensure the resources available to you or a loved one in a time of need are available to the community in the future. 


Memorial & Tribute Giving

Your gift in honor or in memory of someone, or to commemorate a holiday or special occasion, is a meaningful tribute.


Planned Giving

Planned gifts — including charitable bequests, beneficiary designations, gift annuities, charitable remainder trusts, charitable lead trusts, and other estate gifts — create a lasting legacy of support.


Alumni Giving

Alumni philanthropy directly influences the medical school’s trajectory of academic excellence and discovery. With the generosity of our alumni, we continue to expand our positive impact on medicine.


Faculty Giving

Our faculty support students and trainees through scholarships and fellowships and their departments and divisions through support for breakthrough research and education initiatives.


Gifts of Stock, Mutual Funds, or Bonds

Find out how you may gift publicly traded securities to a specific area of Northwestern or to the university's annual fund.


Make a Pledge

A pledge allows you to make payments toward a larger commitment over a three- to five- year period. With our office’s guidance and assistance, you will specify your gift’s designation and the schedule by which your pledge payments will be made. Pledges allow you the financial latitude to structure larger commitments over time. To learn more, please contact us at 312-503-8933 or via email.

Matching Gifts

Matching gifts from your company or private business may double or triple your gift. You can make a matching gift using any of our giving options through our Matching Gifts page. If you are not sure if a particular company matches gifts, please contact us at 312-503-8933 or via email. We would be happy to assist you.
