Planned Giving

For many donors, a planned gift to Brandeis caps a lifetime of generosity and engagement.  Whether it's because they admire Brandeis's dedication to providing a first-rate undergraduate education; its commitment to open inquiry; its history as a nonsectarian institution founded with the support of the Jewish community; or its Framework for the Future, these donors give what, in many cases, is the single largest gift contribution they will make in their lifetimes

Planned gifts can provide donors with an opportunity to meet both their philanthropic and financial goals. Examples of planned gifts include charitable gift annuities, bequests, deferred annuities, charitable remainder trusts, charitable lead trusts and donor-advised funds.

We hope you will keep Brandeis in mind when considering your own legacy. Contact us today to learn how to maximize your philanthropic intentions while benefiting Brandeis's mission for years to come.


“With appreciated securities, planned giving is so easy to do. It is so important to me to be able to support Brandeis and the new Sustaining the Mind: Scientific Research and Scholarships campaign, a cause I am passionate about.”
