• Gift Planning

    Since 1911, Ohio Dominican University has benefited from many visionary supporters. Planned gifts provide the resources that create extraordinary opportunities that help shape the future of Ohio Dominican University. 

    A planned gift may enable you to make a more significant gift than you thought possible while at the same time allowing you to achieve your financial, charitable and estate planning goals. You can choose from many giving options - from naming ODU as a beneficiary in your will to a more complex trust arrangement. 

    The gifting opportunities listed on this webpage are examples of ways you may consider to create your legacy at Ohio Dominican University.

    Legacy Society

    The Legacy Society, founded in 1992, honors a growing number of alumni and friends of Ohio Dominican University who have made a deferred commitment to further the university's mission and educational service.

    Through a bequest to Ohio Dominican University, you fulfill the Dominican legacy of sharing knowledge and resources for the betterment of our world and its people. This principle still stands as a beacon for friends of ODU who wish to ensure that this legacy is passed on to future generations.

    Many gifts- such as real estate, charitable gift annuities and bequests- involve detailed planning for the donor and his or her attorney, tax accountant, and other advisors.

     The Office of University Advancement staff will work closely and confidentially with you and your financial advisors to ensure that your gift achieves your individual goals and expresses your personal vision for Ohio Dominican.
