Planned Giving

Build a legacy for Providence College

The forethought of donors who have included Providence College in their estate plans has transformed campus and academic life at PC. These donors have provided students with exceptional research opportunities, cutting-edge classroom and learning space, and amazing extracurricular opportunities.

Which kind of gift contribution is best for me? Cash or appreciated property? A bequest through my will or a gift-planning vehicle such as a charitable remainder trust or gift annuity?
How can I incorporate charitable giving into my overall retirement, financial, or estate planning goals?
How do I designate my giving so that it reflects my personal values while also support the College’s top priorities?
Our staff is ready to help you consider your unique financial needs and determine the plan that best benefits you and your family, while having a meaningful impact on PC and its future.
