Gift and estate planning with Villanova University can provide peace of mind that comes with settling your affairs, as well as the satisfaction of knowing that you are supporting the University. In fact, a planned gift may help you give more to Villanova than you thought possible, while still providing you or someone you love with favorable financial and/or tax benefits. A planned gift may help you increase income, reduce taxes, avoid capital gains tax or pass assets to family at a reduced tax cost.

The information on this web site was developed to help you discover ways to structure a gift that fit your personal situation. Our experienced Planned Giving Team will work with you and your professional advisor to develop a personalized gift plan that reflects your needs and desires.

Helene and Terry Delaney LAS '83

"I hope the University perpetuates itself. If my annual giving can get us to 200 years, then I hope my legacy gift will bring us another 250 years."



Mary-Helen '08 LAS, '12 VLS and Tim '14 VSB McCulloch

"A gift from our retirement account was the easiest and most impactful way to give back to the school that continues to be such an important place to us."



Margaret & Robert Merkert, Sr. EE '59

"We should all consider giving back to Villanova because we have received so much. Without the strong education, Catholic upbringing, and ethics and morals training, we may not have done as well as we did."
