Gift Planning and Bequests

Leave a Princeton Legacy through Gift Planning

You can use gift planning, including life income gifts and bequests, to provide meaningful support for Princeton’s teaching and research while enjoying financial and tax benefits for you and your family.

A bequest is another effective way to leave a legacy at Princeton. Through your estate or retirement plan, you can provide general support to the University, or fund a program, project, or area of study that is important to you.

We are pleased to enclose an interim report on the investment performance of Princeton’s charitable trusts and pooled income funds. This report was developed to provide a timely update in addition to the annual reports. We expect that future reports and communications will evolve and we welcome your feedback and suggestions on ways to improve our communications.
