Planned Giving

Brandeis is fortunate to count many individuals who choose to leave a legacy of meaningful support for generations of Brandeisians.

For many donors, a planned gift to Brandeis caps a lifetime of generosity and engagement. And in many cases, theirs is the single largest contributWhether you admire Brandeis' dedication to providing a first-rate undergraduate education, its commitment to open inquiry, its history as a nonsectatian institution founded by the American Jewish community or its Framework for the Future,  with the university they deeply admire and credit their own success to; the gift is often the largest contribution they bestow to the institution. Others are inspired by Brandeis’ reputation for producing well-rounded and impressive graduates, so much so that they want to assure the “Brandeis-educated” degree remains a possibility for tomorrow’s students.

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 benefitting Brandeis' mission for years to come.

Brandeis has partnered with FreeWill to help you easily prepare, print and execute a legally valid will online. It’s also an easy way to create a legacy with Brandeis without having to pay a cent today. While we generally recommend consulting a professional advisor in connection with the creation or modification of an estate plan, we recognize that that may not always be an available option.
