One charitable gift, a lifetime of benefits

Shape the future of NAU, create a planned gift and become a Heritage Society member. With a planned gift, you can provide for loved ones, receive tax benefits, generate potential income and support Northern Arizona University.

NAU began in 1899 from a small seed of 23 students, one professor and two copies of Webster's International Dictionary bound in sheepskin. Time, effort and resources have all been combined to grow that small seed into the mighty forest that NAU is today. An endowed gift, through your will or estate plan, can have the same impact over time- changing the lives of future students through programs at NAU that you are passionate about. Consider changing history by improving the future of NAU and its students through a planned gift. We are here to serve you and help you explore options for meeting your philanthropic goals.

We welcome you to dream, explore and inquire about how a planned gift can have a mighty impact on NAU.

A Planned Gift can make dreams like this come true.
