How to Make Generosity Affordable

Protect Your Financial Security Today by Giving a Gift TomorrowLearn More About This Topic

Supporting American University should never come at the expense of your family’s financial security. As health care advances extend our lifetimes, you may worry about outliving your retirement savings.

Perhaps that concern has kept you from being as charitable as you want to be. Yet there’s a way you can help without making major financial sacrifices.

The Benefits of Giving After Your Lifetime

Planning an estate gift to American University is an affordable way to support our work. Because most planned gifts are given after your lifetime, your current lifestyle isn’t affected. Plus, many are easy to make. The most popular gifts—beneficiary designations or including us in your will—can be made by signing a form or adding a sentence to your will.

No matter the size, your gift makes a difference. Your generosity strengthens AU, while giving you the joy of making a powerful impact.
