Planned gifts

Gift planning, also referred to as planned giving or legacy giving, describes an array of methods that can be used to commit to making a gift that will be paid to a non-profit organization at a future date, in some cases from the donor's estate upon their passing. Often these options allow a person or couple to make a more significant gift than they would be able to with their ordinary income. Below are some common ways people give. To view a complete list visit our Legacy Giving site.

Securities

Appreciated stocks, bonds and mutual funds offer tax advantages to a donor.

Real Estate

Real estate gifts such as a personal residence, farm, ranch, or vacant land offer a wide variety of tax benefits.

IRA or Retirement Plan Assets

There are several ways that you can make a gift from your IRA or retirement plan.

Business Assets

Grain + Mineral Interests

You can gift grain and mineral rights directly to the Emporia State University Foundation.

Life Insurance

Life insurance allows you to leverage your resources to make a significant impact.
