Supporting the Foundation with a planned gift benefits both you and the College. Planned gifts may include immediate income and substantial tax savings for you, while meeting your philanthropic goals and the College’s mission to provide the best education for students. Your generosity can be both immediate and enduring.
What are the planned gifts that you can donate?
A bequest to the Foundation included in your will or trust is the easiest way to make a planned gift. When planning a bequest you may want to consider
giving a specific dollar amount or a percentage of your estate
making a detailed statement of how you want your gift to be used
establishing a permanently-restricted named endowment fund.
