What a wonderful way to leave a permanent remembrance of this important milestone in one's life!

Sustained Giving


An endowed scholarship can be established by a contribution of $25,000 or more. Many friends and alumni make contributions to the Troy University Foundation in memory or honor of a family member or a friend through the establishment of an endowed scholarship. This endowment is perpetual, as only the income is used to award scholarships each year. An endowed scholarship is an excellent way to honor someone in perpetuity.

Legacy Gifts

A legacy gift, often referred to as a planned gift, is the process through which a gift is pledged but may be completely or partially deferred until sometime in the future. Legacy gifts can be made by bequests through a will, through revocable or irrevocable trusts, or as other life income gifts. These gifts frequently increase your income, save income tax, eliminate capital gains tax and estate tax, and benefit the University. Troy University can assist you and your advisors in considering many gifts that provide income: Charitable Remainder Unitrusts, Charitable Remainder Annuity Trusts, Charitable Gift Annuities, Deferred Payment Gift Annuities, Gifts of Residences or Farms with Retained Life Estate.
