Benefits to Documenting a Planned Gift

While it is not necessary for you to share a copy of your will or estate documents with UNC Lineberger, both you and UNC Lineberger benefit when you document your intent for making a planned gift.

Why is it important to document your planned gift?  Please consider these benefits:

  • You will be recognized for your gift during your life time with a permanent membership in both the School of Medicine’s Berryhill Society and the university’s prestigious Gerrard Society, and as such, you will benefit from stewardship events and functions for planned giving donors
  • As a planned giving donor you will have the opportunity to fully appreciate the impact of your gift through regular updates and opportunities to meet with faculty and staff
  • By documenting your own planned gift, you serve as an example for other supporters who may  follow your lead
  • You allow the cancer center to account for your gift and thereby play a role in helping us financially project and plan for the future
