Gift planning enables you to support Willamette University more efficiently, provide financial benefits for you and your family, and choose the University programs you want to benefit from your gift. Planned gifts to the University include bequests, gift annuities, charitable trusts, gifts of retirement assets, and gifts of securities, real estate, and other property.
In addition to satisfying philanthropic goals, your gift to Willamette can offer significant financial planning opportunities. Planned gifts offer income tax charitable deductions and allow the donor to avoid capital gains tax on the transfer of appreciated assets to the University. Some gift arrangements can actually serve to increase your income. Our life income plans help alumni and friends of Willamette leave a legacy at the University while securing lifetime income for themselves.
