Planned & Deferred Gifts

Planned and deferred gifts support McCormick's future.

A planned gift is a gift made or promised from your assets or estate. You may receive a current charitable tax deduction and a return on investment. Planned gifts the Seminary accepts include: bequest, charitable trust or annuity, will, life insurance and life income agreement.

Individuals establishing planned gifts with McCormick Theological Seminary 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 Theological Seminary'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 Lisa Radetski, VP of Seminary Relations and Development at 773-947-6320.
