Leaving Your Legacy

The generosity of our friends – through various types of planned giving – helps us to advance our mission and our scientific work. Planned giving is a philanthropic approach to invest your money, often receiving benefits during your lifetime, and then bequeath remaining funds to Coriell.

We encourage you to consider the Institute by including a bequest in your will, or by designating the Institute a beneficiary of your trust, insurance policy, retirement plan, bank account or security. With your planned gift, you may enjoy financial or tax benefits while also helping ensure that we are able to continue our important work for years to come.

We are deeply grateful to each and every individual who supports Coriell with a planned gift. Thank you for your thoughtful commitment to the Institute’s future.

While the information on our site will help you get started, it is summary in form and may not apply to all individuals. Please consult your personal tax, legal, or financial advisors concerning the specific details and consequences of making gifts to Coriell Institute, and to help you determine which approach is the most appropriate for you. You may also contact Coriell’s Courtney Kronenthal, PhD, at (856) 757-9752 for a confidential consultation.
