Planned gifts have a transformative impact on students, faculty, and innovation in education and research—and will prove crucial to advancing the Empower campaign. By allocating your gift strategically through a will or estate plan, you can make a meaningful contribution to Northeastern’s future while meeting your own financial goals.
Immediate and deferred tax advantages, increased income, and a greater rate of return are just a few of many benefits of a planned gift to you and/or your beneficiaries. As Northeastern rises to meet the challenges of the coming century, your gift will create an enduring legacy of support—and fuel another era of discovery and educational opportunity.
Marie Milfleur is realizing her dream of attending Northeastern, thanks to the generosity of the late Dorothy Cooley, BA’60. Through a bequest provision in her will, Cooley established a scholarship to support women who are pursuing both a degree in higher education and a career. Her gift will transform the lives of future generations of women who aspire to academic and professional achievement.

Plan Your Gift
GIFTS ANYONE CAN AFFORD
Make a gift to Northeastern that will cost you nothing during your lifetime, leaving your cash flow and current financial planning unchanged. Instead of cash, donate appreciated assets you no longer need or want. More information
GIFTS THAT PAY YOU INCOME
In exchange for your gift to Northeastern, you and/or your beneficiaries will receive income for life, or for a term of years. When no beneficiaries remain, the university will use the balance for the purposes you have specified. One benefit of this strategy is that it turns non-income-producing investments into an additional source of income for you, your spouse, or other significant person(s). More information
GIFTS THAT PROTECT YOUR ASSETS
Several gift plans enable you to make a gift to Northeastern while also either maintaining control of your assets or transferring them to the university at a reduced cost to you and your heirs. Benefits of these plans include greatly reducing the gift or estate-tax cost of passing appreciating assets on to your children or grandchildren. More information
