Welcome to Planned Giving

Legacy gifts, also known as planned gifts, provide Southern New Hampshire University with the long-term financial strength and security required for its continued growth. Such gifts enable SNHU to act on its mission as an innovator in higher education, serving a student population that consists in large part of those for whom an education is essential for a productive life, but not a given.

Legacy gifts exist in a variety of forms. The most common types of legacy gifts are beneficiary designations of a retirement plan, annuity or life policy, and bequests made in a will. We invite you to explore this section of our Web site to learn about the variety of giving options available to you. We welcome the opportunity to talk with you in greater detail about your philanthropic goals and interests. If you have any questions about charitable planning for yourself or your family, please do not hesitate to contact us.
