Ways to Give
What Can I Give To?
Park Fund - Unrestricted Giving
Designated Gifts Many donors prefer to support specific programs and projects at the University. These gifts, known as annual restricted gifts, enable the University to provide opportunities for students and faculty that otherwise would not be possible.
Establishing an Endowment or Scholarship Fund - Restricted Giving
Once an endowed fund has been established, any donor may contribute to the corpus of that fund. If you are interested in making a donation that will last forever, but you are not interested in creating a new endowed fund, you may contribute to any of the endowed funds currently established at Park. Park University currently has more than 50 endowed scholarships that currently support students to which you may contribute.
Please contact University Advancement staff for more information.
"How will you leave your legacy?"
There are a number of ways you can leave a legacy at Park University through your estate. In many instances, you can build a plan that will provide revenue streams for you during your lifetime and ultimately benefit Park University through the settlement of your estate. Many of these vehicles have tax advantages as well.
Wills and Bequests - You may choose to name Park University in your will or revocable living trust. You may make a gift bequest of a specific dollar amount, specific property, or a percentage of your estate to Park. You may choose to designate the use of your gift for a restricted purpose, or for the Park Fund. Read about how Jim Cariddi is building an endowed scholarship through a monthly gift that will be completed by a bequest in his estate.
