Your Gift Can Make A Difference
Gifts come in many forms.? When pledging gifts, your gift is made available to the System during your lifetime, while most planned or deferred gift options will benefit the System through your estate.? There are two types of gifts: restricted and unrestricted.? All gifts benefit the System.???
Unrestricted gifts:?When a donor makes an unrestricted gift, they do not specify an area that will benefit from the gift.? Instead, the gift is directed to the University?s five campuses by the Southern University System Foundation?s Grants Committee, which receives input from the System president and Campus chancellors.?
Restricted gifts:? Making a restricted gift allows you to designate a specific use for the funds, such as support for students, faculty, facilities or various Campus programs.? For example, you may prefer to fund scholarships, professorships, a new library addition or a research program at the Campus you want to benefit.
