Make a tribute gift

Tribute gifts are a meaningful way to remember a loved one, honor someone special, or celebrate a special occasion. Whitehead Institute will send notification of your gift to the honoree, or in the case of memorial gifts, a loved one or family member.

Make a planned gift

Planned gifts can provide long-term support to Whitehead Institute's research programs while potentially providing financial benefits to you and your family. Whitehead Institute accepts bequests, retirement assets (such as IRAs) and life insurance; we can also work with you to set up charitable gift annuities, lead trusts or remainder trusts. Please contact Sonja Plesset at (617) 258-5103 or splesset@wi.mit.edu for a personalized gift illustration or for more information about ways to support Whitehead with a planned gift.
