Planning your future legacy

Legacy gifts provide the foundation for and future financial strength of Bucknell University’s work. It is possible to take care of your family, provide gifts to loved ones, and include a charitable gift for Bucknell through legacy gifts. We can help you find the best way to make a gift that is tailored to your specific circumstances, perhaps using options that you may not have otherwise considered.

Estate planning

Estate planning can entail difficult choices, but once your plan is in place, it provides a sense of relief and peace of mind. You’ll know that you have done your best to plan and provide for yourself and for loved ones, as well as for the causes you’ve cared about during your lifetime.

Retirement planning

It’s really never too early – or too late – to do retirement planning. With this in mind, Bucknell University offers the following list of basic points to consider.

Compare Gifts

The planned gift that is best for you depends on your goals for the gift. We’ve created a chart that lets you compare the characteristics of your choice of gift plans.
