Dear Alumni and Friends,
Welcome to your resource for charitable gift planning! We are pleased to tell you about the many ways you can help advance Northwestern while receiving tax savings and other benefits. Below is a series of links that may be helpful as you consider giving options that are right for you:
- Types of Gifts — Did you know you can make a gift while also receiving lifetime income? Learn more
- Design Your Gifts — Complete an interactive questionnaire to compare giving options that meet your objectives
- Estate Planning Lessons — Take part in these lessons to learn how you can accomplish your philanthropic and estate planning goals
- Gift Calculator — Use this interactive tool to calculate the income and tax benefits you may receive by making a planned gift to Northwestern
One of the easiest and most popular ways to provide for Northwestern is including the University in your will or trust. Please feel free to download our sample bequest language and share it with your attorney or financial advisor. If you would like to designate your gift to a specific area or purpose, please contact a member of our staff. We are happy to draft specific language for you and assist with any of your planning needs.
Also, sign up to receive Northwestern Matters, our gift planning newsletter, to learn more about our donors and alumni. You can also choose from a selection of free publications on popular estate planning topics. If you prefer to receive news electronically, you may wish to browse our personal planning ideas or sign up to receive our monthly planning ideas by e-mail.
We would be happy to discuss giving options that honor your philanthropic goals and meet your financial needs. For more information or to schedule a time to meet, please contact our team. We look forward to hearing from you!
