CHARITABLE TRUST ADMINISTRATION
You may be looking for a way to receive income for life or a number of years and establish a future gift to Fuller. If you are looking for a way to pass your assets to your family while reducing or eliminating gift or estate taxes, a charitable trust may be the right solution for you. Fuller’s Gift Planning team can help you establish a charitable trust to achieve your financial goals and create a lasting legacy for your family and Fuller.
FULLER DONOR-ADVISED FUNDS
A Fuller Donor-Advised Fund is a charitable giving account that simplifies your giving. With a donor-advised fund, you can contribute different types of assets to your fund, receive an income tax deduction at the time of your donation, and recommend grants online. If you already have a donor-advised fund with The Fuller Foundation, log in to your Fuller Donor-Advised Fund account here.
Your legacy gifts to the Fuller Endowment provide Fuller with resources for scholarships, teaching, research, and library resources to achieve its mission. Over the years, generous supporters like you have used legacy gifts to establish endowed funds for students, faculty, innovative academic programs, and many other purposes. Your legacy gifts to the endowment make an important investment in Fuller’s future impact.
