About Planned Giving
The Office of Development & Alumni Relations endeavors to maximize a donor’s contribution and tax-relief potential and present ways to make a larger gift than thought possible. It facilitates the use of assets such as stocks and securities, life insurance, retirement accounts, a personal will, and property such as artwork and rare books as gift options. Planned Giving can also help secure increased tax benefits and/or supplementary income. Benefits include earned life income, and the reduction of capital gains income and estate taxes. Below are some of the most popular methods for making the most of your contribution.
