The FNIH supports biomedical research and the mission of the National Institutes of Health. We are a leader in recognizing complex scientific and health issues and facilitating partnerships among many types of entities including the NIH, private sector, academia, and other regulatory agencies.
The FNIH Legacy Society recognizes those who have made plans to remember the FNIH in their estate plan or through another type of planned gift. A planned gift to the FNIH can lead to the prevention, treatment and cure of diseases. It is an investment in the future of human health.
Just some of the vehicles available to you are:
- A bequest or distribution from your will or revocable trust
- Naming the FNIH as a beneficiary of your IRA or other retirement plan
- Charitable Lead or Remainder Trust
- Charitable Gift Annuity
- Naming the FNIH as a beneficiary of a life insurance policy
Gifts can be made to support research or programs in specific areas or at a specific Institute or Center at the NIH. Or an unrestricted gift allows the FNIH to direct the funds where they are most needed to support biomedical research or programs.
Have you already made provisions for a planned gift to the FNIH?
Please tell us of your intention so that we may make sure your gift will be used as it is intended and can recognize you as a member of the FNIH Legacy Society (we respect a donor's wish to remain anonymous).
