Planned gifts, most often called "non-cash gifts," "net-worth gifts" or "deferred gifts," are generally given through a donor's asset base rather than with cash or discretionary income. Through planned gifts, people make provisions for the university during their lifetimes, but the university does not receive benefits until a future date.

Benefits of planned gifts may include:

  • Increased income throughout the lives of the donor, a second beneficiary and in some cases, other people or younger family members (often children).
  • A charitable income tax deduction.
  • Relief from capital gains on appreciated property contributed.
  • A potential estate tax deduction.
  • The ability to direct how you want Lakeland University to use the charitable portion of your gift.
  • Membership in the university's Founders Society.

Are you interested in learning more about planned giving? Please contact Beth Borgen, Executive Vice President, at (920) 565-1023 ext. 2152 or borgenbm@lakeland.edu.

Legislation known as the CARES (Coronavirus Aid, Relief, and Economic Security) Act was passed by Congress and signed into law in March 2020 to help individuals, families and businesses facing economic hardship during the coronavirus pandemic. Through this action, individual donors may maintain or increase their giving in order to support their favored missions.
