Planned Giving

Gift and Estate Planning
The purpose of the Gift & Estate Planning Office of the Cancer Therapy & Research Center (CTRC) at The UT Health Science Center at San Antonio is to help individuals find the best way to give. We will help find the giving method that provides the greatest benefit to both CTRC and those interested in including CTRC in their estate plans.

"Planned" or "deferred" gifts can help insure that we eventually find a cure for cancer. There are many ways to give through a planned gift. such as:

  • Bequests (click to download information about bequests)
  • Charitable Gift Annuities
  • Life Insurance Gifts
  • Gifts from Retirements Plans
  • Charitable Remainder Unitrusts
  • Charitable Remainder Annuity Trust
  • Charitable Lead Trust
  • Bargain Sales
  • Remainder Interests in Property
