Planned giving opportunities
When you make a planned gift such as a bequest, trust, or life income gift to the Haas Center, you not only create a legacy for public service at Stanford, you also contribute to the greater good by investing in the next generation of public service leaders.
Making a bequest to the Haas Center is easy. There is no minimum amount and bequests are exempt from federal real estate taxes. You may include the center in a new will or trust instrument, add a codicil to your present will, or amend your present trust instrument to provide for the support of public service at the University. You can designate your bequest to be a specific dollar amount or a specific asset such as real estate or securities, or you can simply provide that Stanford is to receive a percentage of your estate, the residue of your estate, or your entire estate. You may also make the Haas Center a beneficiary of your IRA, 401(k), or life insurance policy.
If you notify the University of your bequest to the Haas Center, you are included as a member of the Founding Grant Society, which the University established to honor alumni, parents, and friends who have included Stanford in their estate plans. Members are invited to participate in a number of special events each year.
