Support the Lurie Center for Autism

The support of people committed to furthering understanding and advancing treatment of autism spectrum and other neurodevelopmental disorders will make great things possible at the Mass General’s new Lurie Center for Autism. Gifts to the general fund will give leaders a source of flexible funding to apply when and where it is needed most. You may also chose to designate your gift in support of the Center’s clinical, research or educational missions.

Your tax-deductible gift will help to leverage the investment from Nancy Lurie Marks and her family and sustain and advance the Center’s important initiatives for decades to come.

There are a variety of ways to support the Lurie Center for Autism:

Donate an outright gift of cash or securities

Making an outright gift to the Lurie Center for Autism allows your donation to be put directly to use in understanding and treatment of autism spectrum and other neurodevelopmental disorders.

A gift of cash is the most common and convenient method of donating to the Lurie Center for Autism. To donate via mail, please make your check payable to The Massachusetts General Hospital and send it to:

Massachusetts General Lurie Center for Autism
c/o MGH Development Office
165 Cambridge Street, Suite 600
Boston, MA 02114

Establish an Endowed Fund

A robust endowment is needed to sustain the Center’s programs and services which are not well reimbursed. For example, a named and endowed faculty position will protect time dedicated to research and teaching, while also ensuring they have the clinical time to focus on their patients’ special needs. Endowed funds can also serve to advance innovative research.

All endowed funds are carefully managed for growth, and will help the hospital in perpetuity. Endowed funds may also serve as distinguished tributes to loved ones by bearing their names. A minimum of $100,000 is required to establish an endowed fund.

Planned Giving Opportunities and Bequests

Donors often choose to make a contribution in the form of gifts that provide them and/or their beneficiary income for life. These arrangements can provide donors significant tax benefits. This invaluable support builds a foundation of hope for Mass General patients — those who come to the hospital in search of exemplary care today and those who will come in the future.

Learn more about planned gifts to Mass General on our planned giving page.

Leverage Matching Gifts From Your Workplace

Many companies match charitable gifts made by their employees, retirees and directors. Please consult your company’s human resources department to learn how your workplace matches charitable contributions to hospitals, and how you might be able to increase the value of your individual donation in this way. For more information about matching gifts, please e-mail us or call Shana Novak at 617-726-2200.
