Gift Planning


Gift planning offers a variety of ways to structure contributions to the University at Albany in order to provide maximum benefits to donors, to their families and heirs, and to the University. These include gifts with special financial, investment, tax, or legal considerations and might involve assets other than cash, such as securities, real estate, tangible personal property, or life insurance. Bequests, charitable trusts, retirement plans, and various life-income gifts are part of our gift planning offerings.
