Planned Gifts & Creative Giving Opportunities

Every contribution toward our campaign goal fuels our leadership in a medical revolution already underway, creating a healthier world. The Campaign for Penn will transform Penn's Abramson Cancer Center and one of the easiest ways to make a gift is through your estate.

Benefits of an Estate Intention

  • Establishes a lasting legacy
  • Directs your bequest to endow or sponsor a specific Abramson Cancer Center program or purpose
  • Enables you to make a significant contribution that may otherwise not have been possible during your lifetime without affecting your current income or cash flow.
  • The value of the estate gift is removed from your taxable estate.
  • When set up as a percentage, an estate gift allows for changes in the value of your assets
