Leave a legacy through planned gifts

By joining the CSU Legacy Society, you can pass on your values for generations to come. Each member of The Legacy Society has remembered the university through a bequest intention, charitable trust, life income plan, life insurance or other estate planning technique.

Membership in The Legacy Society is activated when the donor notifies Charleston Southern that he or she has made the commitment to the university. 

The Fruits of Joining

  • Your values will be passed on to future generations.
  • By the example of your special gift, you will encourage others who may consider passing on the same type of legacy.
  • Providing a planned gift may financially benefit you and your family by offering immediate or deferred tax advantages.

Gratitude & Tribute

  • Members receive an attractive certificate and lapel pin as special mementos symbolizing their membership and acknowledging their gift.
  • Members are invited to the annual President’s Club dinner and other university functions.
  • Members are recognized in Charleston Southern University publications.
