Discover the Benefits of Giving Wisely

Have you ever wished you could support Wilkes University and improve your financial security at the same time?

Well you can. At Wilkes, we call it Creative Giving.

In fact, just one “creative gift” can return an immediate tax deduction to you, plus lifetime income for you and a loved one, plus long-term financial support to Wilkes

That's right… you benefit, your loved ones benefit, and Wilkes benefits. If that isn't creativity, we'd like to know what is.

How is this possible?
By taking advantage of incentives the IRS provides, we can craft a gift that delivers exactly the benefits to us, and to you, that you have been looking for. Financial advisors call these creative techniques “planned gifts,” because with thoughtful planning, you can turn personal giving challenges into win-win solutions for you and for us.

So whether you want to make a gift that costs you nothing during your lifetime, or a gift that gives you guaranteed income for life, this website is where you’ll find out how to make it happen.

Remember, you don’t have to be wealthy to make a significant gift to Wilkes. Find more information in browsing these pages, or contact Sue Jolley, Director of Special Gifts, 570-408-7832, susan.jolley@wilkes.edu
