Planned Giving

When most people think of philanthropic giving, they picture writing a check or charging a credit card to support a partiular cause. At Rutgers-Newark, there are so many more opportunities to consider.

Through a planned gift, you can have a meaningful, long-term impact on NCAS/UCN's goals and interests while taking steps to benefit your own financial situation. Because of advantageous tax laws that provide powerful incentives to support charities, it is possible to reduce or eliminate federal and state taxes owed on the value of a gift.

You can also make a gift to the university that pays you income for lifewith a rate of return that is guaranteed, regardless of market fluctuations. And you can donate real estate, mutual funds, life insurance, and other noncash assets. So you don't need large cash reserves to make a big difference for the Newark College of Arts & Sciences/University CollegeNewark.
