Gifts that Cost You Nothing Over Your Lifetime

There are many ways to support Yale’s future that do not affect you and your family during your lifetime. Although including a bequest in your estate plan is one way to leave a legacy, there are other arrangements, similar to bequests, which are simple, straightforward, and accomplish the same goal.

Bequests (Gifts by Will or Living Trust)

Give to Yale without affecting your cash flow during your lifetime.

Gifts of Retirement Plans

Your retirement plan may be worth more when donated to Yale than to your heirs.

Testamentary Life Income Gifts

One gift in your estate can benefit both your family and Yale. 

Gifts of Life Insurance

Give a policy you no longer need to Yale.
