    • Endowed Chair: $2 million
    • Discovery Fund: $2 million
    • Endowed professorship (three available): $1 million
    • Rising stars (three available): $500,000
    • Lectureship: $100,000 

    Support at other levels
    Gifts between $5,000 and $50,000 will also receive special recognition in the building, in relevant publications, and other media at the following levels:

    • Founders Council: $50,000
    • Benefactor: $25,000
    • Partner: $10,000
    • Friend: $5,000

    The simplest way to support this project is with a tax-deductible cash gift. Since many employers match the philanthropic gifts of their employees, please ask if such a program exists. UMMC also accepts gifts of securities, real estate, or planned gifts such as bequests, life insurance policies, retirement plans, annuities or charitable remainder trusts.
