Support Fairfield for future generations

Since 1942, thousands of students have grown and thrived and discovered their unique calling in the world, grounded in the Jesuit education they experienced at Fairfield University.

Your planned gift can ensure a Fairfield education for future generations of students. Whatever option you choose–a simple bequest, a beneficiary designation, a charitable gift annuity, or a charitable trust–planned gifts offer you a creative, strategic way to support the University far into the future while also providing you with tax and other benefits.

The Bellarmine Society

Your planned gift qualifies you for membership in the Bellarmine Society, a distinguished group of alumni, parents, and friends who have named Fairfield University as a beneficiary of their trust or estate. Members are invited to exclusive events, updated on timely topics from the Office of Planned Giving, and recognized in a special Honor Roll of Donors.

Join the many other alumni, parents, and friends who are making a difference at Fairfield. Take advantage of the planning tools and resources on this site. Then, please contact us! Together we can develop a planned giving strategy that is right for you.
