When you earmark a percentage of your estate to the UGA College of Education through a planned gift, you become a member of UGA's Heritage Society. This includes special recognition and events throughout the year.

With a planned gift, you can leave a lasting impression on your choice of area(s) in the College. This gift also lowers the tax burden on you and your heirs. the most common type of planned gift is a bequest in your will or living trust, but other types of planned gifts include:

  • Charitable gift annuities
  • Charitable remainder trusts
  • Charitable lead trusts
  • Endowment funds
  • Retirement plan assets
  • Life insurance policies
  • Remainder interest in your home

We will be happy to discuss these options with you, and ensure your generosity lives on through programs and scholarships at the College of Education. Please email the Office of Development and Alumni Relations.
