The $20 million endowment being sought will greatly assist IEM in its mission to develop a diverse group of professionals and leaders in industrial engineering and management.
Many alumni and friends of IEM have demonstrated their support to the School through outright gifts of cash and appreciated securities. While these gifts are important and straightforward to make, other methods of support that may not be well known but equally important for our future, exist. There are many estate planning opportunities available through the OSU Foundation that can help transform the School and have a significant impact on its current and future students.
Proper planning can help donors and their families realize the greatest benefits from their gifts to benefit the School. This involves choosing the best combination of assets and vehicles to accomplish charitable, financial, and estate planning objectives. In addition to, or in lieu of making a cash or other outright donation, such provisions may be in the form of bequests, trusts, annuities, life insurance, retirement plans, or other means.
When realized, these gifts often are larger than the donor could ever imagine at the time of their creation. It is a wonderful way in which to create an enduring legacy for the School's benefit. Working in conjunction with you and your professional advisors, the OSU Foundation can help you explore the many opportunities available to best suit your needs and goals.
