Welcome to Gift Planning

Gift planning is strategic financial planning for you and your Cornell philanthropy. With a smart plan, you can put your financial assets to work in a way that extends the benefits of your generosity far into the future and on a much broader scale while continuing to meet your other financial goals and provide for your family. You can:

  • Earn income, pay fewer taxes, and secure your retirement.
  • Provide for others by enhancing your net estate.
  • Make a significant gift to Cornell University.

Our staff is at your service, and a phone call or email will get you started. We will work with you, and with your financial advisors if desired, to help you select the giving tools to meet your goals with no cost or obligation to you.

Call us at 800-481-1865 or e-mail
