What is planned giving?
Planned giving is a way our friends and alumni/ae may accomplish their charitable objectives. This may be achieved by designating funds to be disbursed from their estate or using a planned gift vehicle, which will allow making a gift now, but receiving income back for the remainder of their lifetimes. Will bequests are the most common type of planned gift. However, there are a number of life income plans available that can help to accomplish your charitable wishes. The life income feature may result in your ability to make a larger gift than you first thought possible, while at the same time enhancing your income. While these plans are different, there are a number of benefits common to all.
