PLANNED GIFTS

Join the growing number of Aggies planning their gifts and estates to benefit themselves, their families and Texas A&M. This section tells how you—through planned gifts—can provide for loved ones, receive tax benefits, generate potential retirement income and help Texas A&M all at the same time.


A wide range of planned gift options is available, allowing you to tailor a gift to your unique needs and interests. After-lifetime gifts such as bequests or gifts of retirement assets will benefit Texas A&M without using your current assets or income. Dual-benefit gifts such as a charitable gift annuity or charitable remainder trust will offer you and your family significant benefits as you support Texas A&M.

If you want to create a future gift for Texas A&M, the Foundation’s experienced gift planners will work with you, your attorney and other advisors to design the best gift plan for your individual situation.
