Planned Giving

Consider a planned contribution to Chicago Engineers’ Foundation (CEF) to create a legacy of giving for Chicago’s future engineers.  Your investment makes a lasting impact for engineering students and many opportunities are available.  Planned gifts help you meet your personal, financial and estate planning goals by making a lifetime or testamentary charitable contribution.

Ways to make a planned gift include (but are not limited to):

IRA Rollover
Congress has enacted a permanent IRA charitable rollover. As a result you can make an IRA rollover gift this year and in future years.

Designate Chicago Engineers’ Foundation as the beneficiary of your assets by will, trust, or other instrument.

Charitable Lead Trust 
Transfer your cash or property to fund a lead trust that makes gifts to CEF for a number of years. You receive a charitable deduction for the gift. Your family receives the remainder at substantial tax savings.
