A Choice You Can Trust

Harvard Medical School is the epicenter of the largest biomedical research engine in the world. Discoveries made here have a tangible impact on how the world views and treats disease.

When you establish a charitable gift annuity or charitable remainder trust to benefit HMS, you can be assured that your gift will have an enduring impact: providing you with a guaranteed, fixed income for life while supporting our mission to alleviate human suffering caused by disease.

Current gift annuity rates are 6.0% for donors age 70 and 7.7% for donors age 80. The assets are backed by Harvard University, which maintains an AAA credit rating.

Complete the form below, in confidence, to calculate your fixed income for life and tax benefits.


For a limited time, you will receive two tickets to the Harvard Art Museums, compliments of the HMS Office of Gift Planning, when you complete the form below in its entirety. Tickets will be mailed to the address you provide.
