Put the Checkbook Away
Turn Today’s Gift Into a Gift for Tomorrow
When people think about giving to a charity like Southern Methodist University, cash seems like the easiest gift to give. Write a check and it takes care of our most immediate needs, but what about the long-term needs of those we serve?
Regardless of the season or the time of year, there is always a demand for the important work we do. To help, consider turning the gift you make today into a gift for tomorrow by making a planned gift to SMU.
A planned gift is a commitment to benefit countless individuals for years to come. These types of gifts often involve a little more thought, but you can align them with your overall financial and estate planning goals. The best part? Your gift is generally deferred until after your lifetime, so your current income isn’t affected. Also, with many planned gifts, you can change your mind at any time.
No matter which gift type you choose, you can feel confident in knowing that your contribution will allow us to carry out our mission well into the future.
