Planned Giving
Planned or deferred gifts allow you to make a significant gift now that will benefit Shepherd University in the future. These gifts may include bequests in wills, life insurance policies, or one of several kinds of charitable trusts and annuities. Planned gifts entitle the donor to be recognized as a member of the Joseph P. McMurran Society.

In many cases, planned gifts can offer you substantial tax advantages and financial benefits such as lowered estate tax liability or increased spendable income. We welcome the opportunity to work with you and your legal or financial advisors to establish a planned gift arrangement which will benefit both you and the University.
