Welcome to Gift Planning

Welcome to the Elmhurst College planned giving web site. This site is designed to help you shape a gift to Elmhurst using a thoughtful and planned approach. Planned gifts allow many people to make a more meaningful gift than they thought possible. Here you will find suggested strategies and resources that create the most attractive tax and income benefits for you, your family, and Elmhurst College.

If you have already included Elmhurst College in your estate plans or are planning on making a bequest, please contact us or complete and submit the bequest intention form. Your extraordinary commitment to the College will be recognized by membership in The Meusch Legacy Society. Society membership is automatically granted to those who include the College in their estate plans through such means as a bequest, a life insurance policy, a trust, or a gift annuity. Members receive a bi-annual newsletter, as well as invitations to campus events.

If you have any questions or want to learn more about giving strategies, please contact Valerie Day, Vice President for Development and Alumni Relations, at 630-617-6424 or We would welcome the opportunity to speak with you and help you determine the best ways to achieve your goals and at the same time make an important commitment to Elmhurst College.
