Ways to Give

Your support is crucial in helping us achieve our mission and there are many impactful ways to give.

Make a cash donation

A direct donation of cash is one of the easiest ways to support our work.

Donate stock

Donating stock is a great way to support the Lown Institute while potentially enjoying significant tax benefits. When you contribute appreciated securities, you can:

  • Avoid capital gains taxes on your stocks.
  • Deduct the full market value of the stock as a charitable contribution.
  • Make a meaningful impact on healthcare reform.

Gifts of property

Do you have property, such as real estate, that you no longer need? Consider donating it to the Lown Institute. Benefits include:

  • Potential tax deductions for the fair market value of the property.
  • An opportunity to support our work while simplifying your portfolio.
  • The satisfaction of knowing your property will further our mission.

Planned giving

By including the Lown Institute in your estate plans, you can create a legacy that will transform healthcare for generations to come. Planned giving offers:

  • Various options, such as bequests, charitable annuities, and charitable trusts.
  • Potential tax advantages for you and your heirs.
  • The chance to make a significant impact on healthcare equity and justice.


For foundations and organizations, partnering with the Lown Institute through grants provides an opportunity to support innovative healthcare reform. Benefits include:

  • A collaborative partnership in advancing our shared mission.
  • The chance to fund specific projects or initiatives aligned with your goals.
  • High-impact solutions to complex healthcare challenges.
