Gift Methods

Major Gifts

Your philanthropic investment in the Reynolds Institute on Aging can accelerate discoveries, help bring life-changing treatments into clinical practice, and lead the transformation of Alzhieimer’s disease and care for senior citizens around the world.

Major gifts may come from individuals, organizations, corporations, or foundations.  Major gifts can be current gifts, in which money is donated or pledged immediately, or deferred gifts, in which money is donated through a bequest, charitable remainder trust, or other planned giving mechanism.

Annual Giving

By supporting our annual giving program, you can help ensure that our ground-breaking research into Alzheimer’s disease and other factors of aging will continue into the future.

Unrestricted Gifts

Unrestricted gifts of any size are used to support the ongoing efforts and new programs of the Reynolds Institute.  They are particularly important because they help to fund new projects for which money was not budgeted, and can be used as needed.

Honor Gifts

You can honor a friend, loved one or a member of the Reynolds Institute staff with your contribution.  A letter is sent to the person you designate telling them of your gift.  It is a wonderful way to celebrate a birthday, anniversary or special occasion – your gift “gives” twice!

Memorial Gifts

Your contribution, given in memory of a loved one, friend, etc., is especially meaningful.
You may give an unrestricted memorial, or you may designate that it be used in a specific area.
A letter is sent to the family, whomever you request, telling them of the gift.

Making a gift that lasts beyond your lifetime helps support the
long-term financial health of the Reynolds Institute on Aging.

When you plan a gift to the Reynolds Institute through long-term estate or financial planning, you partner with us in continuing our legacy of innovative research and excellent patient care.

Matching Gifts

Matching gifts are an important source of support for the Reynolds Institute because they can double or even triple
the value of your contribution.  Does your employer (or spouse’s employer) have a matching gift program?

Many employers offer matching gift programs that will match or multiply charitable contributions their employees
make to healthcare facilities, such as the Reynolds Institute at UAMS.

If your company is eligible, you should contact your Human Resources department to find out their matching gift process.  If your employee uses a matching gift form, please complete it and submit it to the address below.

Giving to Chairs, Professorships, Specific Programs

You may designate how you want your gift to be used.  The gift can be added to an existing endowment or you can add to efforts to create an endowed chair, professorship, etc.  Endowments are very lasting gifts.
