What is Planned Giving

NOTE: Banner images should be placed in this first content block and should be at least 720px wide.

Planned giving is any gift made with forethought about the benefits to the charitable institution and the financial implications of the donor and the donor's family. For example, planned gifts are often linked to deferred gifts such as gifts in wills or similar arrangements where the commitment is made now, but funds are not available to the charity until sometime in the future.

Estate planning will ensure your wishes are carried out regardless of your financial situation. At Mount Saint Vincent University, alumni and friends are encouraged to remember the university in their estate planning, ensuring students now and well into the future enjoy the best university experience.

We recommend that you consult with your legal, accounting or financial advisor on the option that is best for you and your family.
