Every institution of higher education has a history, but how many actually steward their legacy? This is what NYIT’s Legacy Society is about: a culmination of its people—alumni, professors, students, leadership—and their accomplishments that attest to the lasting impact the institution has had on their lives. Planned giving is how to build the society. It is a way to support NYIT that enables generous individuals like you to make larger gifts outside of ordinary income through overall financial and/or estate planning. There are many ways to make a planned gift, but in every case the intent is the same: an affinity for NYIT that sustains its ability to transform the lives of others well into the future. This isn't end-of-life planning; it is being a friend for life.
