Those who honor UMA have the power to strengthen and protect this institution today, tomorrow and beyond by making a planned gift. Planned Giving does not need to be complicated or frightening. There are a wide variety of giving options that allow donors to give to UMA during their lifetimes and/or after their deaths, while meeting their current income needs and providing for their heirs.

* Outright gifts
* Life Insurance
* Retirement Plans

A planned gift is a future gift that involves contributing one’s assets through wills and estate plans in order to enhance UMA’s mission and work. Planned gifts help organizations meet their long-term goals and help provide for effective and responsible financial management while also leaving a personal impact and legacy. It’s a lot like planting a tree today so someone can enjoy its shade tomorrow.
