The Cornerstone Society comprises forward-thinking alumni, faculty, parents and friends who give to the University or its related foundations through estate or financial plans, or other deferred gift arrangements. With a planned gift, you may be able to make a greater impact than you thought was possible during your lifetime.
Qualifying gifts include:
- Bequests (wills or living trusts)
- Retirement plan assets
- Charitable remainder trusts
- Charitable gift annuities – immediate or deferred
- Life insurance
Gifts may be for any amount and may be directed to any school, student life program, or University-related foundation. They may be designated for a specific purpose, such as a scholarship, fellowship, or faculty chair. Conversely, gifts may be designated as unrestricted to help the University address needs that cannot be foreseen today. If you prefer your gift to remain anonymous, it can be denoted as such. However, recognition of your gift can inspire others to give similarly.
