Planned Giving

Planned Giving and the Ehrensberger Legacy Society

Planned gifts are the most profound expression of confidence in UMGC. While planned gifts often give something back to you the donors, they also keep giving over decades. There are several ways to increase your giving, while saving money for your family and yourself. Learn how you can make a significant impact on students by including UMGC in your estate and financial planning today. The Ehrensberger Legacy Society is a membership organization that expresses the university’s gratitude to donors by offering benefits and recognition for those who make planned gifts, including bequests, gift annuities, contributions of retirement assets, securities or real estate, and other gifts to be received in the future.
