Ways To Give

There are several ways to give. However you choose to make your gift, please know that we greatly appreciate your support and dedication to the advancement of the world's health.

During the first half of 2023, Johns Hopkins Development and Alumni Relations is transitioning to a new internal constituent database. We are excited about new features that this system enables, however as we work through the transition, our response times, including our ability to update any changes to your contact information, may be slightly delayed. We appreciate your patience as we make this transition.

  • Cash

The School receives the majority of gifts in cash, which is tax deductible and exempt from gift or estate taxation. If all your deductible gifts in a year exceed 50 percent of gross income, you may carry the excess amount over as a deduction for up to five years.

  • Online

For maximum convenience, use our secure online form.

For further assistance, call 410-955-5194 Monday - Friday 8 a.m. - 5 p.m. Eastern Time. For more information, visit our Giving FAQs and the Johns Hopkins University Ways to Give pages.
