Planned giving is an opportunity to make the change you want to see in the world, and for many decades, these lasting gifts have made a tremendous impact on our community and inspired medical progress forward.

The Heritage Society was established in 1995 by Southwestern Medical Foundation to recognize those who make planned gifts to benefit UT Southwestern Medical Center.

It is with deep gratitude for the investments over the past 25 years, we celebrate the phenomenal commitment to our community that our Heritage Society members exhibit. It is with these gifts that we meet the challenges of today and will be prepared to meet the challenges of tomorrow.
