Planned Giving

In honor and recognition of our recent 40th Anniversary, the Law Center launched a Legacy Society. The purpose of the Society is to help ensure the sustainability of the Law School far into the future. We hope to connect with prospective legacy donors to discuss a variety of planned giving vehicles that may help to realize long-lasting philanthropic intent.


Bequests are provisions in your will that designate how your assets will be distributed after your lifetime. Charitable bequests can eliminate or reduce federal estate tax and are among the most flexible ways of giving because you have the option of changing your mind at any time. Bequests can designate a specific dollar amount or specific item or can be expressed as a percentage of your residuary estate.

Beneficiary Designations

Designating Touro Law Center as a beneficiary of your retirement plan, insurance policy, or other financial accounts is one of the easiest ways to realize your charitable goals while continuing to enjoy the benefits of your assets during your lifetime. You may also benefit from significant tax savings. As with bequests, you may change your mind at any time.

Additional ways to make a legacy gift:

  • Annuities
  • Insurance plans
  • Planned giving trusts
