One way to support Bluffton and future generations of Bluffton students is to establish a planned gift. Bluffton values these commitments to our future and will recognize your planned gift as part of the campaign effort.
A planned gift is a commitment made during your lifetime that provides support to Bluffton at a future date. If you have included Bluffton University in your will, you've made a planned gift. Planned gifts are a great way to provide larger support for Bluffton than you ever thought possible while still providing for your family and other estate planning goals.
Supporting Bluffton with a deferred gift isn't limited to including Bluffton in your will; you can also make a gift that provides you with life income. Planned gifts that provide life income are a wonderful way to support Bluffton while also providing retirement income and tax benefits.
Types of planned gifts
- The most common form of deferred gift is a bequest contained in a will or living trust.
- Life income gifts provide a charitable gift for Bluffton University and a charitable income tax deduction and income stream for the donor.
- Other planned gift opportunities to consider include: life insurance, a charitable lead trust, or a gift of real estate, securities or property.
Bluffton recognizes donors who give to the university through planned gifts by welcoming them into the Noah C. Hirschy Legacy Society.
