Begin Your Legacy

You are here

Legacy gifts help provide the foundation for Roswell Park’s work. These gifts allow you to take care of your family, provide for gifts to loved ones, and include a charitable gift for Roswell Park Comprehensive Cancer Center. We can help you find the best way to make your gift, and perhaps help you to make a larger gift than you thought possible.

We also offer naming opportunities on our beautiful campus, if you choose to share your estate plans with us and will be directing your legacy gift to Roswell Park’s Priority Endowment Fund. Choose an area that is meaningful for you, such as a clinic or a pretty outdoor space in our park or on the campus’s many smaller gardens. We will install a handsome plaque as an expression of our gratitude.  Or, you may want to consider creating a permanent, endowed fund in your name or that of a loved one in an area of research or patient care that is meaningful for you.

We will draft a memorandum of understanding which details your wishes for this endowed fund, which can be created now or with your legacy gift, or with a combination of both.  We have a number of donors who are grateful for the care they or a loved one received who have created an endowment which will carry on their loved one’s name while providing critical support for Roswell Park’s mission.
