  • A Lasting Legacy

    Planned gifts provide you with a way to help yourself, your family and our University. By remembering Saint Francis through a planned gift you are supporting the University’s future in a special way. Many times planned gifts allow you to make a larger gift than you thought possible. 

    What is Planned Giving?

    Planned giving is the practice of making charitable gifts which are structured and integrate sound personal, financial and estate planning concepts with the donor's plans for lifetime and/or testamentary giving. Planned gifts are a way for individuals with various financial circumstances to make charitable gifts to Saint Francis, while continuing to meet current income needs and taking advantage of incentives available under current tax laws.

    Planned Giving Resource Center

    We have created an easy-to-understand Planned Giving Resource Center to help you plan - and dream - a little about our future and yours.  There are many easy giving options from which you can choose - strategies that enhance your personal well being, as well as that of Saint Francis University.
     
    The site features a "Build Your Gift" planner, an interactive tool that guides you through the process of narrowing down your choices.  If you already have gift options in mind, click on "Compare Gifts" to see how your choices match up or click on "eBrochures" to request specific information on a planning option.
    We welcome your inquiry and are pleased to assist in any way possible to realize your charitable intentions.  Thank you for considering charitable gift planning and a charitable legacy to benefit Saint Francis University faculty and students.

    The Legacy Society

    The 1847 Legacy Society recognizes the enduring value of education.  It celebrates the vision of the founding friars who laid the foundation for what is now Saint Francis University.  Life those founders, donors who support the University through bequests, charitable gift annuities, charitable trusts, life insurance, and other planned vehicles, are building a foundation for future generations.  Legacy Society gifts help the University fulfill its promise of a high-quality education grounded in our Franciscan values.
