Planned Gifts, Trusts, and Bequests

A planned gift is a gift made during your lifetime, but the benefit is not realized until the future.  A planned gift is typically made as part of your overall financial or estate plan and can offer unique tax savings and/or income producing benefits to donors.

If you are considering a planned gift to the University, we offer services at no charge to help you and your advisors choose a plan that most closely meets your needs and desires. All donors considering a planned gift should consult with their tax, legal, or financial advisors to determine the appropriate type of gift.
