Why is philanthropic support important to Yale Plastic and Reconstructive Surgery? Because, at no point in history has medical research made advances at the current breathtaking pace. We seek donors who wish to participate in pushing the boundaries of medical and surgical knowledge in ways that will benefit all of our patients. Gifts from individuals, grateful patients and families, corporations, and foundations allow our physician scientists to apply their energy and expertise to the pursuit of new and novel innovations in a wide range of surgeries and trauma management. By supporting Yale Plastic and Reconstructive Surgery, you invest in our tripartite mission to provide world-class patient care, train the best and brightest surgeons of the future, and conduct cutting-edge research that translates to better health care for all.

Gifts of Marketable Securities

A gift of appreciated securities that you have held for more than one year is frequently the most economic way to give. You will be eligible to take a federal income tax deduction equal to the fair market value of the stock on the date of the gift for up to 30 percent of your adjusted gross income, and you will not have to recognize the appreciation as capital gain.
