Choosing the best mix of assets to give is an important part of the process. The outcomes must benefit each donor to fulfill their vision in the way that is most meaningful to them.


Benefits of Giving

Planning to share your assets is an important decision that needs the guidance of financial and legal professionals to ensure your interests and your philanthropic goals are met.

  • Many types of gifts have substantial tax saving benefits that may reduce your IRS exposure.
  • The FGCU Planned Giving team provides a full range of services to support our donors and help them explore what to give to the university.
  • Unlike financial and legal professionals, FGCU employees or representatives do not offer legal or financial advice.
  • We assist in facilitating all transactions, but we encourage you to consult with your accountant, attorney, estate planning professional, or financial advisor.
