MAKE A BIG IMPACT WITH A FUTURE GIFT

If you would like to extend your support of Georgetown University to make a lasting impact, there are many gift arrangements to consider.

Whether you would like to support our work today or after your lifetime, we can help you find a charitable plan that lets you provide for your family while also supporting Georgetown. Here are some of the most popular ways to create your legacy:

CREATE A BEQUEST

A bequest in your will or trust is an easy way to provide for loved ones while also helping to secure Georgetown's future. All it takes is a few simple sentences and a meeting with an estate planning attorney.

DONATE APPRECIATED SECURITIES

If you donate stocks you've owned for more than one year that have also increased in value, you may qualify for significant tax advantages. For more information on making a gift of stock, visit our gift instructions page.

MAKE A GIFT AND RECEIVE FIXED PAYMENTS FOR LIFE

If you'd like to support Georgetown while also receiving reliable payments for life, a charitable gift annuity may be right for you.

ARRANGE A CHARITABLE TRUST

A charitable remainder trust provides income each year (either fixed or variable) for you and/or loved ones. After the trust terminates, the balance remaining in the trust will go to support the designation of your choice at Georgetown.

GIVE RETIREMENT PLAN ASSETS

Consider making Georgetown University a beneficiary of a specific amount or percentage of your retirement plan assets. Then, leave less heavily taxed assets to your loved ones.

USE LIFE INSURANCE TO MAKE A GIFT

There are several ways you can use life insurance to give back to Georgetown University. We can help you explore your options.
