Planning for the Future

Today’s Princetonians share a heritage with past generations; their gifts to the University help shape Princeton for future generations. Planned gifts, including trusts and bequests, allow alumni, parents, and friends to provide for their own financial needs while creating a lasting legacy that benefits Princeton.

Planned gifts added approximately $249.3 million to the Aspire campaign’s total and funded many of the University’s core needs.

Gift Planning

“My gift both provides a source of financial security in retirement and the satisfaction of 'paying it forward' in gratitude for the positive impact that Princeton has had on my life.”
