What Will Your Legacy Be?
Donors who have named Texas State in their estate plans are eligible for lifetime membership in the Guardian Society. Their support represents an investment in the future of Texas State and ensures the availability of funds to sustain the university in years to come.
To become a member of the Guardian Society, donors name Texas State University as a beneficiary in a:
- Bequest provision in your will or revocable trust;
- Life insurance policy;
- Life-income gift such as a charitable remainder trust or a charitable gift annuity; or
- Gift or assignment of qualified retirement plan assets such as an IRA, 401(k) or 403(b).
Benefits of Membership
Planned gifts create a meaningful legacy at Texas State, providing long-range support that will shape the university far into the future. As a member of the Guardian Society, the university will provide the following:
- A complimentary subscription to Hillviews magazine, which publishes three times a year;
- An invitation to an annual event with university leaders, faculty and students; and
- An invitation to attend other specially selected events.
Those who make a documented planned gift will also be considered a member of the Pillar Society or designated as a Texas State Hero, depending on the level of the gift.
- Anyone who makes a planned gift greater than $100,000, but less than $1 million will also be considered a member of the Pillar Society.
- Anyone who makes a planned gift of $1 million or greater may be considered a Hero based upon their previous giving and relationship to the university.
