Alumni, friends and parents can make a meaningful gift to Salus University or one of its colleges while realizing substantial benefits, including the reduction or elimination of estate taxes, significant immediate charitable deductions, lifelong income, conversion of low-yielding assets to a higher income stream (with reduced capital gains costs), and much more.
Planned gifts typically come from a donor’s assets rather than income and can be outright or deferred. Although there are substantial benefits associated with planned giving, the primary motivation for the donor should be philanthropic. Also, we highly recommend that donors consult their tax or legal advisors before making a planned gift.
At this time the foundation that receives all contributions in support of the University and its colleges continues to be named the Pennsylvania College of Optometry Foundation. Planned and deferred gifts benefitting Salus University or its colleges should be made to the PCO Foundation.
