Planned gifts, including bequests and life income gifts, are designed to help you meet your financial and charitable goals while supporting Muhlenberg in the long term.

Create your legacy through a planned gift

Charitable gifts extend your generosity well into the future. Did you know that a planned gift can also protect your assets, provide for your family and guarantee you income for life? You can even make a significant impact through a gift that costs nothing in your lifetime through a charitable bequest under your will.  

What to give

Creative gifts of assets can include stocks, bonds and property (real estate and personal property such as artwork). These can not only provide you with charitable deductions, but can also often offer additional tax savings as well.

Join the CIRCLE OF 1848

Including Muhlenberg in your estate plan entitles you to membership in the Circle of 1848, an honorary society for alumni, parents and friends who make future plans for the College through trust, estate, life income plans or other future gifts. Learn more about the Circle and planned giving here or complete this membership form to join us immediately.
