Planned Giving

A planned, or deferred, gift enables you to make a larger gift to Southeastern University than you may have thought possible, while still providing financial security for you and your family. Here are a few ways you can leave a lasting legacy.

Charitable Income Plans

This planned giving opportunity sets up a charitable gift annuity or charitable remainder trust, where you receive annuity income while living, and your heirs can also receive annuity income for a defined period. Southeastern receives a portion of your estate as a gift after your family members or other beneficiaries have received their estate benefit.

Beneficiary of Life Insurance or IRA

This option allows you to designate Southeastern University as a beneficiary of your insurance policy or IRA. You may leave a benefit to SEU in your existing policy, or you can purchase a separate life insurance policy naming Southeastern as the sole beneficiary. This option allows you to leave a larger estate gift than you might normally be able to give by purchasing a new policy and paying a small monthly premium over time.


One way to leave a legacy gift to Southeastern University is when you bequeath a gift to SEU in your will or trust that the university receives upon your death. A bequest, or estate gift, may be in the form of cash, stock, or real property.
