Planned Gifts: Taking B-CU Into the Future

A planned gift is a great way to show your support and appreciation for Bethune-Cookman and its mission. It is an effective way to achieve financial and estate planning goals while supporting B-CU into the future. 

There are many ways to include charitable giving in your estate plans, for an amount and purpose of your choosing. Bethune-Cookman recommends that you consult your legal counsel and/or financial advisors before making a gift. Their assistance can help you make the largest possible gift to Bethune-Cookman University at the least possible net expense. They will consider your personal financial circumstances to help you receive maximum benefits from existing tax laws.
