Planned Giving

The vast majority of  individuals and families do not realize the important legacy they are capable of leaving to an organization dear to their heart.  Most do not have a will, leaving their life-long acquired wealth in the hands of the government. If Georgia State University is close to your heart, and you would like to explore how to leave a legacy to our students and faculty, the Office of Gift Planning is here to help. We serve as your resource for exploring the use of tax and financial planning techniques to make a lasting gift to Georgia State while simultaneously ensuring financial stability for  you and your loved ones. We consider it a “win-win” situation.

We have the tools and expertise to help you examine planned giving questions and find solutions. This website can help you dream about your future — and ours. If you’d like to begin planning your legacy, try our Build Your Gift planning tool. If you already have gift options in mind, visit Compare Gifts to see how your choices match up or view our eBrochures to request specific information on a planning option.

Professional advisors can visit For Professional Advisors to gather information that can help you work with your clients who are interested in giving to the Georgia State University.

We are pleased to meet or talk with you at any time to answer your questions or discuss various gift planning options. Please call Laura M. Sillins, JD, at 404-413-3425 or email
