Planned Giving

Every Logger leaves a legacy. What's yours?

We invite you to create your legacy at Puget Sound through a planned gift that supports the work of the university while allowing you to plan for your own financial security.

Planned gifts are not the result of great wealth, but rather of a great desire to make a lasting impact. After carefully considering the goals of your contribution, the assets to be used, the gift’s timing and tax implications, and its impact on your family and financial situation, you may find that you are able to make a larger impact with a planned gift than you imagined.

Planned gifts can be used to support faculty members, endow financial aid, or create your own scholarship. Your gift will support, inspire, and transform the students and faculty at Puget Sound, and the campus itself, for generations to come.

If you are interested in supporting Puget Sound through a bequest, you can download our sample bequest language or visit our sample bequest language page for examples of language that may meet your specific needs, or contact the Office of Capital and Planned Giving.
