Pavonia Heritage Society Donors
The Pavonia Heritage Society is comprised of the University's esteemed alumni, parents, faculty, staff and friends who support the University through planned gifts. Be a part of the future and join the Pavonia Heritage Society with a planned gift. The most popular type of planned gift is a gift in your will or through your trust. Here are a few reasons why this option works well for so many Saint Peter’s University supporters:
- Simplicity. Just a few sentences in your will or trust is all that is needed. Return the enclosed survey to receive wording you can share with your attorney to complete your gift.
- Flexibility. Because you are not actually making a gift until after your lifetime, you can change your mind at any time.
- Versatility. You can structure the gift to leave a specific item or amount of money, make it contingent on certain events or leave a percentage of your estate to the University.
Your planned gift will help to continue the University's story of graduating students for careers and purposeful lives through teaching excellence, experiential learning, leadership and community engagement. Contact the University today for more details about ways to make a lasting impact for Saint Peter’s University and its students.

A charitable remainder trust provides you or other named individuals income each year for life or a period not exceeding 20 years from assets you give to the trust you create.
You fund this type of trust with cash or appreciated assets—and may qualify for a federal income tax charitable deduction when you itemize. You can also make additional gifts; each one also qualifies for a tax deduction. The trust pays you, each year, a variable amount based on a fixed percentage of the fair market value of the trust assets. When the trust terminates, the remaining principal goes to Saint Peter's University as a lump sum.
