Planned Giving

Naming Opportunities


Bequests allow you to leave your legacy to benefit the College in your will. By making your bequest intent known in advance, you can plan for the future and we can recognize your generosity during your lifetime.

Planned giving is an important legacy investment that recognizes the long-term vision and value of the institution. Since our first planned gift in 1921, donor and alumni gifts through estate planning have provided countless opportunities for students, faculty and programming. Whether through trusts, charitable gift annuities or bequests, planning your estate and referencing St. Louis College of Pharmacy is an important way to ensure your legacy.

Life income gifts, such as charitable gift annuities and charitable remainder trusts, provide a fixed income for life to you and can accrue valuable tax and estate benefits. You can also establish a charitable lead trust that will make regular payments to the College with the principal reverting to your heirs after a fixed term.

Life Insurance

You can make the College the irrevocable owner and beneficiary of a paid-up whole life insurance policy.

Retirement Assets

If you make the College a retirement-plan beneficiary, your gift will be transferred after your death. Or you may directly assign your annual IRA distribution to the College.
