Planned Giving

A planned gift may enable you to make a more substantial gift than you thought you could while satisfying your personal, financial, and philanthropic goals. Unlike cash donations, planned gifts are typically made from assets in your estate, rather than disposable income. There are several ways to make a planned gift:

  • Giving a bequest through your will or trust offers a way to support Georgetown's mission for generations while meeting your current financial needs.
  • Life income gifts allow you to make a gift and receive income back for life or a term of years—for you or a loved one.
  • Whether you have been saving for years or are just starting to build your nest egg, you may name Georgetown as a beneficiary of a specific amount or percentage of your retirement account or insurance policy.
  • IRA Charitable Rollover Gifts are a tax-smart way to make a gift to charity while meeting your RMD and realizing income tax benefits. If you are 70 ½ or older, you can direct up to $100,000 to charity each calendar year from an IRA.

    Simply contact your IRA plan administrator and request a distribution be made to Georgetown directly from your IRA. Check with your IRA administrator about any deadlines they may have for these gifts and ask that they include your name with the distribution. Request that checks be sent to:

    Georgetown University
    Office of Planned Giving
    2115 Wisconsin Avenue NW, Suite 500
    Washington, DC 20007
    Georgetown Tax ID: 53-0196603

    Please notify Georgetown of the incoming IRA charitable rollover gift. Provide the name of your IRA administrator, amount of gift, and gift designation.

  • Other creative gift plans provide opportunities to transfer ownership of real estate, personal property or another treasured asset to create your Georgetown legacy.

For more information, or to notify us of an incoming gift, please contact the Office of Planned Giving at plannedgiving@georgetown.edu or 800-347-8067.

Your support strengthens the schools and programs that educate women and men to be reflective lifelong learners, to participate actively and responsibly in civic life, and to live generously in service to others. Thank you for your commitment to Georgetown's success, today and always.
