There are many different gift vehicles available and the Trine University Development Department is ready to help you design a gift strategy that will meet your financial needs and the mission of Trine University. Planned gifts can take many forms. The manner in which you decide to support Trine is a matter of personal preference. The choice of the gift should always be best suited to the needs and desires of the donor.
Potential benefits of planned gifts include:
- Increasing current income to oneself or others

- Reducing one's income tax and or estate taxes
- Easing the transfer of assets to family members or loved ones
