Capital gifts support both the endowment and larger projects which fall outside of the operating budget, such as extensive renovations or the creation of new buildings. Capital gifts, which are generally given over a period of years, are vital to the school's ability to attract and retain the highest quality faculty and offer a program which meets the varied needs of our students.
Planned gifts take a longer term view, ranging from life-income gifts, to bequests, to creative arrangements using retirement-plan benefits. Some people choose to make either an outright or deferred gift of assets such as stocks, bonds, or property. Making a planned gift may allow you to give more than you ever thought possible and, at the same time, benefit from tax advantages or income for a term of years or life.
