Giving to the PMNC

The Penn Medicine Neuroscience Center (PMNC) was established in July 2006 with the ultimate goal of improving neuroscience clinical care. The PMNC advances and unites Penn’s strong clinical care, research, and educational programs in the neurosciences.

Make a Gift to the Penn Medicine Neuroscience Center

Private philanthropy meets funding needs not covered by government grants, tuition revenue, or insurance reimbursements. Your donation enables us to seize unexpected opportunities in this rapidly evolving discipline.

Giving Opportunities

Many types of giving opportunities are available to support the Penn Medicine Neuroscience Center.

Unrestricted Gifts
These donations go to areas with the greatest need. They are allocated only at the discretion of the Directors of the PMNC. With these gifts we can rapidly respond to unanticipated emerging opportunities. Make a gift today.

Special Purpose Funds/Targeted Research
You may wish to join the many donors who support specific programs or types of research. For example, you can designate your donation for research in the specialty area of your personal physician. Make a gift today.

Named/Endowed Funds
These significant gifts are among the most powerful ways you can support our work. You designate how the fund is to be used, and because only the interest may be spent, endowed funds live on in perpetuity. These funds may be named and offer an excellent opportunity to memorialize or honor someone, for example, The Jane and John Doe Fund for Neurological Research.

A minimum gift of $25,000 is required to create an endowed fund. To learn more, we invite you to discuss, in confidence, with the Director of Development for Centers and Institutes, opportunities that will best match your interests. Please contact Lindsey D. Walker, Director of Development, at 215-898-3037 or lindsw@upenn.edu.

Planned Gifts
The PMNC accepts gifts made by bequest, gifts of real estate, personal property, life insurance, retirement assets, and trusts.

We are happy to arrange a confidential, no-obligation discussion of your particular situation with a planned giving specialist. Please contact Marcie Merz at mmerz@ben.dev.upenn.edu, or visit the Penn Medicine Planned Giving web site for more information.

Matching Gifts
Your gift to the PMNC can be doubled or tripled through your employer’s matching gift program. Visit your or your spouse’s Human Resources office to learn more about matching gifts and to obtain the appropriate form.
