Planned Giving

Planned Gifts

It may be helpful from an estate, financial, and tax planning perspective to consider long-term gift planning. Planned giving can be accomplished through various gift instruments, such as charitable remainder trusts, gift annuities, charitable lead trusts, and bequests. Please contact Jonathan Vaughn, Executive Director of Development, at 845-257-3364 or email

We’ve partnered with FreeWill to make planned giving simpler than ever. Using their free tool, you can create a legal will in 20 minutes or less at no personal cost. It makes it easy to include the necessary language to complete your planned gift to SUNY New Paltz, and can be used in conjunction with an attorney for more complex estates. Click here to write your free will and get started.

Have you already included the SUNY New Paltz Foundation in your will? Please fill out this form to let us know! We would love to thank you for your generosity.
