Life Stage Gift Planner™

With this tool you will learn about the issues you may be dealing with as you decide which type of gift is most appropriate given your life situation.


Welcome to Planned Giving

Making a planned gift is a wonderful way to show your support and appreciation for the University of Houston and its mission while accommodating your own personal, financial, estate-planning, and philanthropic goals. With smart planning, you may actually increase the size of your estate and/or reduce the tax burden on your heirs. Just as important, you will know that you have made a meaningful contribution to UH.

We recommend that you familiarize yourself with various gift options by exploring Ways to Give and What to Give. Then compare gift options and/or calculate how these gifts could work for you. And of course, please contact us for assistance or to discuss your personal situation and objectives.
