Options for Planned Gifts
There are many ways to meet your philanthropic goals and extend your generosity well into the future. Gift planning can also be structured to protect your assets, provide for your family, and guarantee you income for life. Depending on your needs and your available assets, you can find an option to meet your financial goals.
Gifts by will and gifts that pay you income are the most popular options our Cornell friends have chosen for their planned gifts. Below are ways to make a planned gift.
Gifts by Will
Make a gift that costs nothing now.
Gifts That Pay You Income
You can support Cornell and retain income for yourself and loved ones.
Gifts That Protect Your Assets
Lead trusts allow you to benefit Cornell now, then your heirs.
Consider retirement-plan benefits for a significant gift to Cornell.
Gifts by Estate Note
An estate note is an irrevocable pledge or debt against the donor's estate.
Donor Advised Fund
Our donor advised fund is a convenient alternative to a private foundation.
