Planned Giving

Leaving a Legacy

A well-designed planned gift affects the campus for years to come, benefiting you, your heirs and SUNY Cobleskill.

Generous donors with large or small estates may overlook charitable opportunities as part of estate planning, but you can continue your support of SUNY Cobleskill while providing for your loved ones.

Your estate is entitled to an unlimited estate tax charitable deduction for bequests to qualified charitable organizations.  Through your estate, you can ensure SUNY Cobleskill has the financial resources it needs to transform lives by offering an extraordinary, yet accessible education to future generations of students.

There are many planned giving options, some offering guaranteed lifetime income, some letting you keep your assets now while having an enduring impact on tomorrow.

Whichever you choose, you’ll be recognized as a member of the SUNY Cobleskill Heritage Society.  Please contact our Office of College Advancement staff for assistance and additional information regarding language and minimum requirements to fund scholarships, professorships and other endowed accounts.
