Plan a Gift to Benefit You, Your Loved Ones and SRU

With thoughtful arrangements for a planned gift via a will or living trust, charitable gift annuity, life insurance policy, retirement account or charitable trust, you can leave a legacy at Slippery Rock University and accomplish personal financial goals to benefit you and your loved ones.

Include a Bequest Provision to SRU in Your Will or Living Trust

Provide a written commitment to SRU in your will or living trust. Bequests cost you nothing during your life, can result in significant estate tax savings, and ensure that your legacy will benefit future Slippery Rock University students. Bequest provisions are flexible and can be changed if your needs change.

Designate SRU as a Beneficiary of Retirement and/or insurance Plans

Complete a beneficiary designation form that leaves all or part of your retirement plan assets or life insurance proceeds to Slippery Rock University, in many cases lessening the tax burden for loved ones.

Create a Charitable Gift Annuity

Receive fixed income for life in exchange for your irrevocable gift to benefit Slippery Rock University. 

Slippery Rock University acknowledges all planned gifts with membership in The 1889 Society. Membership in The 1889 Society has no minimum gift level, as each gift represents a unique lifetime commitment to Slippery Rock University's future and all that is made possible through philanthropy.
