Planned Giving

Tuck benefits from the foresight and generosity of earlier generations.

We acknowledge with gratitude the gifts of those whose vision has extended beyond their own time to support of our students, faculty, programs, and facilities.

Many alumni and friends choose to support the school through planned gifts. These may include:

  • Multi-year payments of gifts of cash or securities or outright gifts of other assets, such as real estate
  • Life income plans whereby the donor transfers an asset and retains (or provides for another person) an income for life
  • Charitable lead trusts that may permit people to save on income, gift, and estate taxes
  • Bequests, the most popular and flexible method of charitable gift planning, allows you to establish a gift through your estate plan.

Tuck can help you determine the type of gift that best maximizes your generosity in a way that is least burdensome or that provides some benefit to you.

Tuck Hall Society

Tuck recognizes the men and women who make a promise to the future through their estates or other planned giving options. Those who have included Tuck in planned giving arrangements are invited to join the Tuck Hall Society. There is no minimum gift amount, and no distinction is made regarding the size or type of planned gift. A bequest is the most popular and flexible method of planned giving. Your bequest, which comes directly to Tuck upon your death, may be augmented or altered at any time as your circumstances change and may be set up to provide life income for someone you wish to support. While an unrestricted gift is the most common bequest, and the most useful for Tuck, we will gladly work with you to support a particular objective or program.
