Planned Giving


Planned Gifts offer creative and flexible strategies that enable you to support the programs that matter most to you. At the same time, this way of giving helps you to pursue your own charitable and financial goals. Get started by taking the Three Quick Questions quiz to find out what type of gift(s) may be right for you!

To discuss the possibility of making a planned gift, please contact the Office of Gift Planning at 800-200-0575,, or Let them know you are interested in giving to the College of Environmental Design.

Giving Options Can Include: 

Bequest: Give to the College of Environmental Design without reducing your assets or affecting your cash flow during your lifetime.

Business Interest: Gifts of partnership interests or interests in limited liability companies can provide considerable benefit. 

Charitable Gift Annuity: Receive fixed lifetime payments and significant tax benefits. 

Charitable Remainder Trust: Make a substantial gift and create a flexible source of income for you or a loved one.

Publicly Traded Securities: A gift of publicly traded securities can provide substantial tax savings.

Real Estate: You can make a significant contribution with a gift of residential, commercial, or undeveloped real estate.

Retirement Plans: Designate the College of Environmental Design as a beneficiary of a retirement plan and avoid income tax your beneficiaries would otherwise have to pay.
