Planned giving

Planned gifts allow you to partner with the University of Tennessee Southern to find the best way to give.

One of the most popular and simple ways to make a gift.

Beneficiary Designations

Continue supporting our work even after your lifetime by naming us as a beneficiary of your retirement plan, life insurance, or insurance annuity assets.

Charitable Gift Annuities

Make a donation and receive a fixed annuity payment each year for life.

Charitable Remainder Trusts

In the right circumstances, this plan can increase your income, reduce your taxes, unlock appreciated investments, rid you of investment worries, and ultimately provide very important support.

IRA Distribution

You can take advantage of a simple way to benefit UT Southern and receive tax benefits in return if you are 70.5 years or older. You can give up to $100,000 from your IRA directly to a qualified charity such as UT Southern without having to pay income taxes on the money.

Memorial and Honorary Gifts

Consider making a gift to us in honor of a friend or family member whose life has been touched by UT Southern.
