Planned Giving

Legacy gifts represent sustainability for key academic and research programs as well as scholarship funds to help attract and retain students. These gifts provide benefits to future generations of IPFW students—and to you and your heirs.

There are several ways to make a gift through your estate plans:

  • You can make a gift of cash, securities, real estate, or other property directly to IPFW.
  • You can designate IPFW a specific percentage of your estate.
  • You can designate IPFW as full or partial beneficiary to your retirement plan or life insurance policy.
  • You can designate IPFW as the beneficiary of all or part of the remainder of your estate or trust after the payment of estate related expenses and other bequests.
  • You can establish a charitable gift annuity or charitable remainder trust with IPFW.
  • You can designate IPFW as the full or partial beneficiary of an annuity or trust you have established.

Please contact us to learn more about how you can best plan your gift to meet your needs and have a significant impact.

Thank you for your interest in gift planning with IPFW.  Our hope is to serve you and your family with helpful information.  We have an increasing number of friends at the University who are now benefiting from life income gifts, gift annuities and other plans.  Thank you for taking the time to explore the benefits of gift planning.
