at Southern Oregon University
A charitable bequest is a gift to the Southern Oregon University Foundation that is made through your will or living trust. It gives you the ability to create a lasting and personal legacy that ensures SOU’s future.
A charitable gift annuity is one way to support SOU with a gift that gives you dependable income in your retirement years and gives you the satisfaction of creating a lasting and personal legacy at Southern Oregon University.
Establishing a Charitable Remainder Trust empowers donors to secure a sustainable legacy, providing income for themselves or loved ones while advancing Southern Oregon University’s mission.
Designating Southern Oregon University as an IRA beneficiary facilitates a transformative impact, advancing educational excellence through strategic financial planning and thoughtful philanthropy.
We’d love to hear from you! Please contact the Office of Development to discuss further your charitable intent. We can provide a personalized document to share with your attorney or tax adviser. Communication with the staff is always confidential and never infers an obligation.
If you have already made a planned gift to SOU, we’d like to thank you and ensure that your gift reflects your charitable intention.
