Planned Giving

Charitable Trusts and Charitable Gift Annuities, Bequests (all)

The central meaning to the word trust involves a firm confidence placed in an institution or an individual.  Trust is not a one-way street.  In order to work, trust must flow both ways because it involves obligations on both sides. When we use the word trust we think of words like integrity, character, and faith.

Any gift is a gift that keeps giving beyond your lifetime. If you would like additional information about any of these or other giving arrangements, please call the Office of Development at 214.818.1311.
