Planned gifts, such as bequests or charitable trusts, are a powerful way to achieve your philanthropic as well as financial and estate planning goals while leaving a lasting legacy. You can take care of yourself and take care of the Graduate School of Education.

“Education is a life-changer. I don’t know if people understand the direct impact that the GSE is making—in policy, in classrooms, and in research—and the way the school is changing lives. I want to support that.”

“It is such an honor for the GSE to receive a bequest intention. It is one of the best votes of confidence in our work that we can be given.”

GSE Legacy Partners

The GSE recognizes those who make a planned gift of any amount as GSE Legacy Partners. Once you inform the GSE that you are making a planned gift, you will be recognized as a GSE Legacy Partner either by name or anonymously, if you prefer. We look forward to thanking you and inviting you to special GSE events.

Legacy Partners are also honored as members of the Stanford Founding Grant Society, which recognizes planned gifts to any part of the university.
