Protect Your Financial Security Today by Giving a Gift Tomorrow

Supporting Northwestern should never come at the expense of your family’s financial security. As health care advances extend our lifetimes, you may worry about outliving your retirement savings.

Perhaps that concern has kept you from being as charitable as you want to be. Yet there’s a way you can help without making major financial sacrifices.

The Benefits of Giving After Your Lifetime

Planning an estate gift to Northwestern is an affordable way to support our work. Because most planned gifts are given after your lifetime, your current lifestyle isn’t affected. Plus, many are easy to make. The most popular gifts—beneficiary designations or including us in your will—can be made by signing a form or adding a sentence to your will.

No matter the size, your gift makes a difference. Your generosity strengthens Northwestern, while giving you the joy of making a powerful impact.

Select the Gift That’s Right for You

Making a gift to Northwestern is more affordable than you may think. Contact Northwestern Gift Planning at 800-826-6709 or giftplanning@northwestern.edu to learn about gifts that preserve your financial security.
