What is “Planned Giving”?

Planned Giving is the process of a donor making a charitable gift throughout their lifetime, or after death. This statement is included in the will with the YSU Foundation as the beneficiary. It instills a legacy beyond their years, allowing for a greater impact on the lives of future generations of YSU students.
