Bequests & planned gifts


Bequests have the advantage of creating meaningful future gifts without lessening the assets available to you during your lifetime. Bequests can be made for the benefit of the library program of your choice, and may consist of the entirety or a portion of your estate.

Trusts and Charitable Gift Annuities

Charitable remainder trusts and charitable gift annuities may provide you (or others) income during your lifetime, a charitable income tax deduction, and provide substantial future support for the Iowa State University Library.

Bequests, charitable remainder trusts, and charitable gift annuities are legal commitments. While the Director of Development may provide information helpful to you, we suggest you seek the counsel of your legal and financial advisors. These advisors know your personal situation best.

For more information about including the University Library in your estate plans, please contact the Director of Development,, 515 294-0431, or see
