Gift Planning

When you make a planned gift to Princeton, your generosity has an impact far beyond your lifetime. Your gift supports generations of students whose lives will be forever changed by their Princeton experience and who will forever change Princeton. 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.

Our staff brings decades of expertise to the process of gift planning. We will work with you to help you find the best ways to meet your financial objectives while providing support to Princeton.

Giving at Year-End

Through careful planning, a year-end gift can allow you to do more for causes you care about than you may have thought possible — and provide you with tax benefits. As you review your 2022 philanthropic donations, we hope you will consider making a gift to Princeton.

The 1746 Society, named for the year in which the University was founded, gratefully acknowledges benefactors whose estate gifts to the University show that the future of Princeton was close to their hearts.

Anyone who notifies Princeton that the University is named as the beneficiary of a gift through his or her estate, or through a planned gift during his or her lifetime, is automatically enrolled. The 1746 Society has over 2,600 living members, including those who choose to remain anonymous.
