Penn State Beaver's alumni and friends are choosing today to ensure the future of tomorrow's campus by including the campus in their estate plans.
Friends and alumni have committed gifts of cash, securities, real estate, and/or other assets to the campus by providing a bequest in their wills or trusts. Gifts may be a specific bequest of a designated sum or may be a percentage of a residual estate.
The value of your bequest to Penn State Beaver is fully deductible for estate tax purposes. In addition, you may establish an income-producing planned gift for the benefit of others through your will, thereby reducing your taxable estate. A bequest can be a useful and advantageous addition to your estate plan, whether outright or for a planned gift.
To learn how you can include Penn State Beaver in your estate plans, please contact Diana Patterson, director of development, 724-773-3558. In addition, experts in planned giving are on staff at Penn State University Park. Please feel free to visit the Penn State Planned Giving website.
