Gift Planning

A gift to Rush University Medical Center can also serve as an important financial planning tool.

For more than 40 years, Rush University Medical Center has made it a priority to work with donors to devise deferred gift strategies that are mutually beneficial. Rush benefits through gifts that fund student scholarships, endowed chairs, improved facilities, research and patient care, while our donors enjoy the opportunity to both maximize their intentions for Rush and provide a nest egg for their future and the future of their families.

A deferred gift, like a bequest or life income plan, can have many benefits:

  • Provide income for life
  • Reduce or eliminate capital gains taxes
  • Generate a charitable income tax deduction
  • Reduce or eliminate gift and estate taxes
  • Allow you to make a significant impact on the future of Rush University Medical Center

All those who notify Rush that they've invested in Rush Medical College's or Rush's future through a provision in their will, trust, life income arrangement or other estate plan is invited to join the Rush Heritage Society.
