GIVING FBGT - BOD mtg_1200Generous Giving – The Gift Of Making A Difference

You can be an important part of continuing the mission of MNITF and helping to save and improve the lives of so many. Financial giving to MNITF creates unique opportunities for us to devote necessary resources to further advancing research and education. Below is a list of ways that you, your family, and friends can help keep the flame of hope alive for potential transplant recipients.

Directed Giving

With a planned giving strategy, you can earmark your contribution for any area of MNITF’s work that you choose, including the One-to-One Program or research projects. You can also donate to an area of MNITF that is not yet fully funded.

Gift of Cash

This is the simplest and most common type of support. You can make a one-time gift, monthly payments, or pledge to donate over a one- to five-year period.

Memorial or Honorarium Gifts

This is a gift made in memory of, or in honor of, a loved one. A notification of your gift, with the amount undisclosed, is sent to the recipient indicated.

Life Insurance

Donating a no longer needed policy entitles you to an immediate tax deduction for the policy’s current cash value. This applies to whole life and not term life insurance policies.


You can provide a donor’s estate with a charitable deduction to offset federal taxes.

Life Income Gifts

The most common type of life income gifts are charitable gift annuities and charitable remainder trusts.

MNITF relies on your generosity to help continue our research and education programs, thus advancing the art and science of organ transplantation.
