Make a Planned Gift, Leave a Legacy
We made it easy to give.
Make a planned gift and leave a legacy
There are many ways to give to the University of Nebraska. You can make a gift through your estate plan without giving any money right now or you can make a gift that will return an income to you, such as an annuity.
All of these gifts are referred to as planned gifts because you are planning to provide the gift at a later date, and all of these gifts grant you membership in the Burnett Society – A giving society for individuals who support the university with a planned gift.
Regardless of the method you choose, you may designate your gift to the area that matters the most to you and leave a legacy at the University of Nebraska. If you've already made a planned gift, please share your plans with us. We'd love to hear your story.
To learn more about the impact of the Burnett Society, please watch our video above. Here, members toured the greenhouse at the university’s Innovation Campus followed by a lunch at the Embassy Suites in Lincoln where they enjoyed hearing from several student scholarship recipients. Throughout the year, the Burnett Society brings members together for special events created with them in mind.
For more information, contact any member of our Gift Planning team.
