Your gift, no matter the amount, is critical and will provide us with the resources it needs to be one of the world’s most successful and distinguished centers of research, patient care, and intellectual inquiry.

As a donor, you will receive an acknowledgement and receipt to use for tax purposes, and, to recognize our appreciation for different levels of generosity, NSU has a donor recognition program



Patients and families have been touched by the compassionate care they received at the Institute for Neuro-Immune Medicine and wish to express their appreciation and gratitude in a meaningful way.

These gifts provide an opportunity for those who want to give something back, and at the same time, allow us to advance cutting-edge translational research and treatment for patients suffering from complex neuro-inflammatory illnesses.

  • Your charitable deduction for federal income tax purposes is based on the full, fair market value of the shares on the date the gift is made.
  • You receive credit from the University for the full, fair market value of the shares, but the cost to you is only your original purchase price.


For more information about the benefits, please contact Shari Meehan at 954-262-1510 or Jenny Powers at 954-262-2168 or by email at Of special note, Nova Southeastern University has recently created a new giving recognition society that has been established in order to formally acknowledge thoughtful individuals who have made the University a beneficiary through an estate planning vehicle. For example, legacy gifts may come from a simple bequest through a will, a beneficiary of a trust, a beneficiary of a charitable gift annuity, or as a beneficiary of a life insurance policy or retirement account. There is no minimum amount in which to make a legacy gift and to become a member of the 1964 Society.

Please join us in our mission to advance clinical care and translational research, develop collaborative scientific studies, contribute to the improved health of our communities, and to be the best that we can be.

We appreciate any and all donations. Thank you for your thoughtful generosity.
