A planned gift is a gift made or promised from your assets or estate. Planned gifts the Seminary accepts include: bequest, charitable trust or annuity, will, life insurance and life income agreement.

Individuals establishing planned gifts to McCormick become members of the Heritage Society, a donor society established to express appreciation to a special group of seminary supporters - alumni/ae and friends who have provided for the continued well-being of the seminary through their estate and financial plans.

In providing a planned gift, you help ensure McCormick’s continuing leadership for collaborative theological education as we prepare women and men to be fully engaged in church and society. For assistance and information regarding planned gifts or guidance in completing your planned gift, please contact:

McCormick Theological Seminary welcomes gifts of life insurance andencourages donors to make such gift using their own insurance agent. Using life insurance to make charitable gifts has many advantages because of the simplicity of ownership transfer for this kind of gift, the potential tax advantages, and the possibility of asset replacement in a donor's estate. The Seminary does not endorse particular insurance plans or carriers, nor does it engage in the services of any particular company or agent in the promotion of gifts of life insurance.
