An estate gift (or a planned gift) is one of the most powerful ways to support our students, our faculty and our programs at any of the four University of Houston (UH) universities. Members of The 1927 Society play a critical role to ensure that our UH will remain a vital educational asset by providing generous resources on which to draw in the future. Outright or planned gifts of $25,000 or more allow you to create a permanent legacy, or endowment, fund. You qualify for membership in The 1927 Society when you notify us that UH is a part of your estate plan in any of the following ways:
- Naming UH as a beneficiary of your will or living trust
- Naming UH as a beneficiary of your retirement plan—IRA, 401(k) or 403(b)
- Establishing a charitable gift annuity or a charitable remainder trust to benefit UH
- Naming UH as a beneficiary of your life insurance policy
- Donating real estate or personal property to benefit UH
The 1927 Society was created to celebrate our alumni and friends who affirm their commitment to UH through a planned gift. Their generosity demonstrates an investment in the future of our universities and their missions. The gifts of our 1927 Society, when realized, will provide operating or endowment support to provide student scholarships, lectureships, research and program support, faculty chairs, professorships and fellowships, or capital improvement projects.
For more information about membership in The 1927 Society, assistance in making a planned gift to benefit UH, or questions on named endowments, please call Assistant Vice President – Gift Planning Lisa K. Holdeman at 713-743-8408, or e-mail firstname.lastname@example.org. The details of your gift will be kept confidential.
