Gift Planning

There are many ways you can make a gift that costs you nothing today—or that helps you make a tax-wise investment in your future and Princeton’s. You can support the University’s mission through:

Bequest intentions and beneficiary designations. These gifts cost you nothing now, and they can be allocated to general support or to a program, initiative, or area of study that is important to you.

Life income gifts.  These gifts provide attractive benefits, particularly when funded with appreciated assets.
