Planned Gifts

A planned gift, including bequests and other types of estate gifts, is considered the pinnacle of giving to Grand Valley. Your planned gift to Grand Valley compliments annual gifts made during your lifetime, and ultimately helps ensure the long-term success of the university and its students.

Donors who support Grand Valley with a planned gift are recognized in and become members of the prestigious Gillett Society, Grand Valley’s longest-standing donor society named in honor of Richard M. Gillett, who was a driving force in the creation of the university. 

The easiest and most common form of gift planning is to include a gift to Grand Valley in your will or estate plan; however there are many other options to consider.
