Tower Society

The Quinnipiac University Tower Society honors those individuals who have remembered Quinnipiac in their estate plans. By making these gifts, Quinnipiac alumni, parents, faculty and friends play a vital role in securing the future of the University.

To join the Tower Society, you may:

  • Put Quinnipiac University in your will, trust or other estate plan (including use of your retirement plan as a gift vehicle);
  • Create a life-income plan, such as a charitable gift annuity which provides income to you and a gift to Quinnipiac; or
  • Provide a gift of real estate, which could include your own residence, while retaining the lifetime right to live in it.

The following is recommended language for making a gift by will or trust to Quinnipiac University:

"I give, devise or bequeath to Quinnipiac University, a nonprofit 501(c)(3) corporation, in Hamden, Connecticut, (insert here a percentage of my estate, an amount in dollars, and/or property such as securities or real estate) for its general purposes or for the following purposes: (a named endowed scholarship, for example)."

Donors are encouraged to designate their bequest or planned gift for a named endowment fund for a chair, professorship or scholarship in their name or in memory of a family member or loved one.
