Ways to Give

Fund for SAIS

 Make the biggest impact — the Fund for SAIS serves as a critical source of funding for the university’s highest priorities. When your gift is designated to the Fund for SAIS, your support allows us to offer more fellowships, scholarships, and other financial aid or scholarship support for current students. Your annual gifts have a direct impact in helping us shape the world.

Giving Societies

No matter what campus you give to, when you meet certain designation levels, you earn admittance into our recognition societies. They are designed to honor and thank alumni and friends for their ongoing and generous financial support around the world.


Establish a gift that keeps on giving — an endowed fellowship. Not only do fellowships support students of promise, but they allow donors the unique opportunity to create relationships with students that last throughout their professional lives. You may designate your fellowship to any of our three campuses, and you will be invited to events where you can meet the very students you support. Currently, there are more than 180 named fellowships and counting.


Giving towards a building or construction project allows for your name to be remembered forever. Buildings on campus are spaces where students remember some of the best times of their lives. They host classrooms — the heart of the school’s experience — as well as events such as lectures, seminars, conferences, student government activities, graduations, and alumni reunions.

Planned Giving

When planning for your overall financial and estate designation wishes, gift planning ensures your philanthropic wishes are met. Whether you remember Johns Hopkins through appreciated stock, a retirement plan, or your will, planned gifts allow the school to prepare for the future. They may result in significant tax benefits, or even a new source of income for you and your spouse. For additional information, please visit the Johns Hopkins Office of Gift Planning website.

  • Please use the online submission form to ensure your card information is received and you get year-end credit. Mail-in credit card forms often are not processed before the end of the year.
  • Note on courier services. Unlike USPS and other countries’ postal services, gifts sent through FedEx, UPS, etc., will be credited by Johns Hopkins SAIS based on the date the gift is received.

This will allow us to count the postmark date as the date of your gift.
