Legacy Giving

You can make a gift that leaves a lasting impact

A legacy gift makes it possible for you, your loved ones, and the Morgridge Institute to all benefit. An estate gift is a powerful and meaningful way to honor your life and make a difference in science, outreach, and education.

Your generosity can help the next generation of scientists, researchers, and educators working at the forefront of science and medicine. You and your financial advisor can create a lasting impact that suits your needs as well as supports the Morgridge Institute’s mission to improve human health, spark a scientific curiosity, and serve society.

Legacy giving can also provide a number of benefits for your financial, estate, and tax plans, and may result in substantial tax savings, especially on gifts of highly-appreciated assets. The total savings, including income, estate and capital gains taxes as well as probate expenses, can be very significant to the preservation of your wealth. 

You and your family can direct all or a portion of your estate to the Morgridge Institute. In addition, we welcome the opportunity to create a fund named in your honor, or in recognition of a family member or person who you seek to honor.

We’re here to help. If you have any questions, or have included the Morgridge Institute in your estate plans, please contact Bill Swisher. We want to ensure your lasting impact meets your financial goals.

You can also fill out this short form to inform the institute about your estate plans.

Every month new breakthroughs are published where people say, ‘Wow! How could we not have known this? And how could we have ever thought we could understand X without knowing this?’

There’s a huge need, but also a huge and growing opportunity, in that we’ve learned enough to advance further in increasingly powerful ways. So we can be very confident that investments in these critical arenas will pay off handsomely for society.”
