Annuities, trusts, bequests, and endowed funds are among the options in planned giving. Consider including Franciscan University in planning your financial and charitable goals.

Planned gifts are often popular because of the flexibility and tax benefits they provide. They are also an effective means of stewardship as they redirect assets to our mission that otherwise might be lost in estate taxes, capital gains taxes or income taxes.
