Giving Back and Creating a Legacy

The Myeloma Center is a trailblazer in the development of innovative treatments for myeloma and other plasma cell neoplasms. With a firm commitment to helping patients regain their lives and look forward to a disease-free future, the institute’s health care team provides expertise while extending compassion and encouragement.

Patients and families frequently ask how they can give back to the Myeloma Center as a gesture of gratitude and as a way to support future patients.

For many, regardless of financial capacity, the answer is a planned gift. This giving mechanism can take many forms. For example, it can be stipulated in a will as a future gift, it can be set up as an annuity that provides current income, or it can be in the form of an endowment, such as an endowed chair in honor of a professor or program. A planned gift can sometimes provide relief from certain taxes.   

A planned gift is an excellent way to solidify philanthropic intent and provide resources for generations to come.

If you are interested in finding out more about planned giving, please contact Tom Stephenson, senior director of development for the Myeloma Center at 501-526-6990, extension 8551, or TLStephenson@uams.edu. Information about planned giving can also be found on the UAMS website at www.giftplanning.uams.edu.

In thinking of legacy, we hope you consider the Myeloma Center as a worthy recipient of your generosity.
