Honor Society

Join fellow alumni and friends who are members of Shippensburg University Foundation’s Honor Society!

How to become a member:

By including the Shippensburg University Foundation in your estate plans, you are entitled to membership in the Shippensburg University Foundation’s Honor Society. Types of planned giving options that qualify for membership include Charitable and Deferred Gift Annuities, Charitable Remainder Annuity Trusts, Charitable Lead Trusts, Charitable Remainder Trusts, Gifts of Insurance and retirement plans, and Bequests. These types of special gifts can generate lifetime income for the donors, preserve an inheritance “nest egg” for your family members, offer various tax savings benefits, and position the timing of a gift regarding real estate or other property. There are many ways these types of charitable gifts operate and can be tailored to benefit your family.
