Making a planned gift is a wonderful way to show your support and appreciation for SUNY Cortland and its mission, while accommodating your own personal, financial, estate-planning, and philanthropic goals. With smart planning, you may actually increase the size of your estate and/or reduce the tax burden on your heirs. Just as important, you will know that you have made a meaningful contribution to the Cortland College Foundation.
We recommend that you familiarize yourself with various gift options by exploring Ways to Give and Assets to Give. Then compare gift options or calculate how these gifts could work for you. And of course, please contact us for assistance or to discuss your personal situation and objectives.
