Giving Societies

Ensuring the University’s Long-Term Success

Established in 1989, the Georgia State University Legacy Circle recognizes alumni and friends who have included Georgia State University in their estate plans. The members have made highly personal and enduring gifts to ensure the long-term security and excellence of the University. Such gifts have no minimum requirement and can take the form of:

  • a bequest through a will or trust
  • a charitable life income plan such as a charitable remainder trust or a charitable gift annuity
  • a gift of property subject to a life estate
  • a gift of life insurance
  • a retirement plan asset

Donors receive a thank you/welcome letter and are invited to various campus events, including an annual event to recognize their commitment.
