Planned Giving

Your time at Ivey had a significant impact on your life and your career. By arranging a planned gift to Ivey, you do more than acknowledge the School’s contribution to your success. Your gift reaches well into the future, helping Ivey stay on the leading edge of teaching and research, and maintain its standard of excellence for years to come.

Planned gifts can allow you to make a substantial gift to Ivey, while also achieving your long-term philanthropic and financial goals. While the simplest and most common way to arrange a gift is through a bequest in your Will, a number of other options are available to meet you and your family’s needs.

The Dr. Frederick W. P. Jones Society

Named for Ivey’s second Dean (1954-1963) and one of the first bequest donors to Ivey, The Dr. Frederick W. P. Jones Society recognizes Ivey alumni and friends who have made a commitment to Ivey’s future by including the School in their will or estate plans.

If you have included Ivey in your estate plans, please let us know. This will help ensure your wishes are properly understood and allows us to say “thank you” during your lifetime. Members will also receive:

  • Exclusive bi-annual communications from the Dean
  • The opportunity to be listed in Ivey’s online donor roll as a member of the Society
  • The opportunity to be listed on Ivey’s lifetime giving lists after gift realization
