Planned Giving

A planned gift can be a creative tool to achieve financial and estate planning goals while supporting the GSB in a significant way.

There are a variety of planned giving options, such as creating a bequest or living trust; designating Stanford as the beneficiary of a life insurance policy, IRA, or other retirement plan; or making a “life income gift,” which can provide a donor with considerable tax savings currently as well as an income for life.

A planned gift can be either unrestricted, allowing the school to seize opportunities or meet unforeseen needs as they arise, or be restricted, offering a way for donors to support an educational program of their choice or an area in which they are particularly interested. In addition, a planned gift can be either expendable, providing immediate resources, or — by meeting a minimum gift level — endowed, and provide permanent support.

If you have included Stanford or the GSB in your estate plans, let us know. We would like to thank you for your generosity, make sure the purpose of your gift is understood by the school, and recognize you as a GSB Legacy Partner. GSB Legacy Partners involve no dues or obligations of any kind, and all who join are also recognized by the university’s Founding Grant Society.
