Planned Giving

In 1985, the Colonel Henry Rutgers Society was formed to recognize those thoughtful graduates and friends who include Rutgers in their estate plans. Like Colonel Henry, their commitment demonstrates a faith in the future by a planned gift that will last beyond a lifetime. You can become a member of the Colonel Henry Rutgers Society by doing one or more of the following:

  • Make a bequest in your will to Rutgers
  • Name Rutgers as a beneficiary of a life insurance policy
  • Make a gift to Rutgers that pays you income for life
  • Establish a charitable trust to benefit Rutgers
  • Make a gift of a residence to Rutgers while retaining the right to live there

If you would like to leave a legacy gift that would benefit the Rutgers University Libraries, the Office of Gift Planning would be happy discuss your goals and concerns on a private and confidential basis. They may be reached at 732-932-8808.
