Benefits of making a planned gift
Make an impact
UGA donors are helping talented students push boundaries, take risks and follow their passions. Their gifts are funding critical research that will improve lives and are bringing more distinguished faculty members to campus to inspire the leaders of tomorrow.
Assuring the Future
As the birthplace of higher public education in America, the University of Georgia is committed to keeping tuition and fees affordable for all students. However, in an era of rising costs and decreasing state support, the university relies on private support more than at any time in its history.
The tax advantages of planned giving may be substantial by providing immediate deductions and/or by possibly reducing estate taxes in the future.
Membership to the Heritage Society
The Heritage Society honors alumni and friends who have made a deferred gift to support University of Georgia. Members receive special recognition from the president, are listed in the Annual Honor Roll of Donors and are periodically invited to special events on campus.
Over $250 million in documented planned gifts have been given by Heritage Society members.
