Welcome to The University of Akron's
Center for Gift and Estate Planning

The University of Akron takes great pride in improving lives. We deliver a world-class learning experience to a range of students – including first-generation and nontraditional – and help them reach their higher-education goals, whether they're pursuing degrees in polymer engineering or modern dance.

At the Center for Gift and Estate Planning, we also take great pride in improving lives. We specialize in helping alumni and friends create planned gifts that meet their philanthropic, financial, and estate goals – while also improving the UA experience.

Planned gifts may even provide tax benefits or a revenue stream to donors or their loved ones. More importantly, planned gifts always provide personal satisfaction, for donors support what's important to them – from helping deserving students complete their degrees to funding groundbreaking research, new programming, or capital improvements.

It pays to have a plan.

This website has been designed to provide answers for many of your questions regarding planned gifts – whether you are unfamiliar with legacy giving or already have a specific gift in mind. Simply use the links on the left to learn how you can make an impactful gift to the University without impacting your current lifestyle or financial security.

At any time, you also are welcome to contact the Center for Gift and Estate Planning directly. We are pleased to partner with you and your professional advisers to design a meaningful planned gift that is exactly right for you.

We look forward to serving you – and appreciate your interest in making a planned gift to The University of Akron!
