Planned Giving

Pave the way for future students, faculty, and pivotal projects at Parkside through planned giving.   

With many different giving options, you can help make more possible for future students and the university all while leaving your legacy. A planned gift may also offer considerable benefits to you and your family. A planned gift can:

  • Reduce your current income and capital gains taxes, as well as gift and estate taxes.
  • Provide income for you and/or a beneficiary, such as your spouse or another family member.
  • Provide you with the satisfaction of making a substantial contribution toward the college’s current and future needs.

There are many ways to give to Parkside. You can make a gift through your estate plan without giving any money right now, or you can make a gift that will return an income to you, such as an annuity.

Types of Planned Gifts
  • Bequests and Estate Plans
  • Life Income Gifts
  • Charitable Gift Annuities
  • Charitable Remainder Trusts

Regardless of the method you choose, our objective is to help you meet your philanthropic goal in a way that works best for you. Before making a planned gift to Parkside, we advise you to consult with your financial, tax, and legal advisors for a thorough analysis of your individual situation and the tax consequences and to decide which of these ways of giving might work best for you.

If you've already made a planned gift, please share your plans with us, we'd love to hear your story.
