How Your Gift Helps

You are here

Legacy gifts deliver hope, relieve financial burden, inspire academic performance and provide  opportunity for professional advancement.  These gifts build meaningful and rewarding lives for students for whom fulfillment of career-focused dreams is a constantly escalating challenge. 

“If I can ease the burden of tuition, even a small bit, I consider my decision to establish an endowed scholarship fund that uses some of my IRA proceeds a success,” notes a Class of 1982 alumna.

Another Class of 1956 alumnus notes, “For many years I have dreamed about making a significant contribution to help MCPHS students. This is just one way that I can help to make that dream come true." My life is as good as it has been because of the education I received, and what I did with it," says a graduate from 1975. "I've always felt very strongly that I want to give back to the school that had nurtured me." 

These gifts, by virtue of their connection deepens the connection with donors.

Benefits of Giving

In addition to supporting the mission of MCPHS, a legacy gift can provide to you substantial tax advantages, especially on gifts of stocks and real estate. The total income, estate, and capital gains tax savings and the probate expense savings can come close to the amount transferred. The benefits include: 

  • Income Tax Deductions
  • Reduced Capital Gains Taxes
  • Reduced Estate Tax
  • Income for Life

Simply by taking advantage of incentives the IRS provides, you and your advisor can craft a gift that fits your needs, as well as the needs of MCPHS. A legacy gift makes it possible for you, your loved ones, and MCPHS to all benefit.

We want to be sure that we can fulfill your wishes. If you have any questions, please contact:
