Planned Giving

Why not balance your personal and family financial objectives with your charitable interests? Planned Giving provides this opportunity.

Planned giving or "charitable gift planning" refers to the process of making a charitable gift of estate assets to the college. Depending on the vehicle you use, you can save on your income taxes, reduce or eliminate estate and inheritance taxes, and avoid capital gains taxes.

Planned giving techniques can also improve the amount of income realized from your investments or help you transfer property or other assets to members of your family without tax consequences.

Depending on the size of your gift and its potential impact, you are encouraged to consult with your professional advisor (i.e., attorney and/or financial planner) prior to making your gift.
