In addition to supporting NIU students, faculty, and programs, your planned gift can provide substantial tax and financial advantages, including:

  • an income tax deduction
  • reduced capital gains taxes
  • reduced probate costs and estate taxes
  • income for life

Congress has provided several incentives to encourage your contributions. By taking advantage of these opportunities, you and your advisor can craft a contribution that fits your needs, while you support NIU Foundation. A well planned gift makes it possible for you, your loved ones, and NIU Foundation to all benefit.
