Welcome! What is Gift Planning?


Gift planning is finding ways to make charitable gifts now or after your lifetime while enjoying financial benefits for you and your loved ones. We've created this easy-to-understand Web site to help you plan, for your future and ours. There are many easy giving options from which you can choose—strategies that enhance your personal well being, as well as New England College of Optometry and New England Eye.

Not sure where to begin?

  • Try our Build Your Gift planner. By answering a few basic questions, this interactive tool steps you through the process of narrowing down your choices. It's fun and easy to use!
  • If you already have gift options in mind, choose Compare Gifts to see how your choices match up.
  • Click on eBrochures to request specific information on a planning option.


If you get lost, rest assured that we're always here to help. Simply contact Nancy Broude, Vice President of Institutional Advancement at New England College of Optometry at 617-587-5585 or brouden@neco.edu with any questions.
