Tower Light Society members make a lasting difference

Did you know you can make a legacy gift to support your alma mater that costs nothing during your lifetime? Including Towson University in your will or trust is a thoughtful way to make a real difference in supporting the university.

A planned gift through your will or living trust is one of the easiest ways to make a special legacy gift. Why?

It’s revocable

A bequest doesn’t take effect right away. It is a gift that doesn’t affect your current asset balance or cash flow. If your plans or circumstances change, you can easily revise the bequest.

It’s simple

One paragraph in your will or trust can set up your legacy gift.

It’s flexible

You can leave a specific amount, a specific asset or a portion of your estate; and you may choose exactly how your legacy gift will be used.

Your thoughtful planning can make a tremendous difference in our future planning. Membership in the Tower Light Society is offered when donors let us know that they have named the Towson University Foundation, Inc., as a beneficiary in their will, trust, life insurance, retirement or other estate plan. Other members qualify through charitable gift annuities.
