Planned Giving


Planned gifts secure future resources to support and strengthen the mission of the Southwest Minnesota State University Foundation. They also offer potential income and tax advantages for you.

If planned giving is a new thought, several factors need to be considered, including the people, property, and estate plans you currently have in your life. Gifts of life insurance, real estate, and will bequests are some of the common gift options available to you.

Learn more here about how you can impact future generations of SMSU students through our comprehensive online planned giving resources.

If you have already included the SMSU Foundation in your estate plans, we are very grateful. Please let us know by calling us or filling out the Estate Intention Form.

Regardless of your charitable intent, we'd be happy to discuss gift options that may be right for you. Information about your personal circumstances is kept confidential. And, as with all estate planning, you'll want to consult your attorney or estate specialist for their expertise and advice on your personal circumstances.
