Wills and Estate Planning

Gift planning is a tremendous opportunity to meet your charitable goals at a level you never thought possible.

Including Drexel University in your will or living trust is the perfect way to make an enduring impact on future generations of students — without affecting your current lifestyle. You can name Drexel as a beneficiary of a specific dollar amount or a percentage of your estate and choose to support the A.J. Drexel Autism Institute.

In addition to bequest gifts, there are many other options that allow you to make your planned gift as unique as you are.  Working with our gift planning experts, you can choose to defer your giving using retirement assets or a life insurance policy.

You can even take advantage of a charitable gift annuity or other life-income gift that enables you to establish a legacy now, and still provides you with an income during your lifetime.
