Living Legacy

Planned Giving

A seed planted today... brings beautiful blossoms tomorrow.

The Living Legacy Society is an opportunity to make Ben-Gurion University of the Negev part of your legacy through planned giving.

AABGU offers a range of planned giving options that enable you to support the University in perpetuity.

Living Legacy Garden

In recognition of your planned gift to AABGU on behalf of the University, you will become a member of BGU’s Living Legacy Society and your name will be inscribed on the wall in the beautiful Living Legacy Garden on the Marcus Family Campus.

How Will My Living Legacy Be Used?

Your gift will help the University in a way that is meaningful to you. You can choose to support specific research initiatives, underwrite academic and recruitment opportunities or support scholarships to help deserving young people afford higher education. Whichever giving opportunity you choose, your legacy will be essential to the future of BGU, its students and faculty.

AABGU is here to work with you as a partner in philanthropy to support the pioneering work of Ben-Gurion University. Including us in your long-term estate planning could provide you with:

  • Personal satisfaction
  • Current income tax charitable deduction
  • Avoidance of capital gains taxes
  • Future estate tax deduction
  • Annual income for you and/or your benefactors
  • Removal of property from probate

How Will My Legacy Be Honored?

Members of the Living Legacy Society are honored as special members of the AABGU community and are recognized in the Living Legacy Garden on BGU’s Marcus Family Campus in Beer-Sheva.

Scholarships and other endowments you may establish will bear your name or the name of a loved one in perpetuity. If your estate plan already remembers BGU, please let us know so we can thank you personally and welcome you to a very special group of people.
