Giving at WCSU

Planned Giving


Making a planned gift is a wonderful way to show your support and appreciation for WCSU and its mission, while meeting your own personal, financial, estate-planning, and philanthropic goals. You may actually increase the size of your estate and/or reduce the tax burden on your heirs by planning ahead. You don't have to be a certain age or very wealthy to plan a gift that changes the lives of students.  If you would like to explore the ways that you can make a planned gift to WCSU, please contact Julie Pryor-Bennett at (203) 837-8111.

The Legacy Society

The Legacy Society recognizes all Western Connecticut State University alumni, parents, and friends who have made a commitment to support WCSU through a gift that will be realized after their lifetime. Membership is granted based on the donor’s intent without regard to the size of the gift.

Your membership involves no dues, obligations, or solicitations, but it does allow us to thank you and recognize you for the plans you have made. Click here to download the WCSU Legacy Society membership form.
