Generosity repaid by ongoing good

Ways of giving at ACU

Giving doesn’t need to be a once-off affair. Below are our options if you choose to make a more sustainable contribution.

Make a bequest

A bequest is a planned gift to ACU through a will or trust. It’s a powerful gesture that leaves a lasting legacy for future generations. It also enables gifts that may not have been possible during the giver’s lifetime.

Invest in an endowed gift

Endowed gifts are donations for a specific cause that are invested. The proceeds from this investment, such as interest or dividends, are then used to fund the cause. This leaves the initial amount untouched, enabling it to make an impact forever.
