Use Your IRA Distribution to IMPACT THE FUTURE

"Instead of taking the required minimum distributions and paying taxes, we direct them to SUNY Oneonta and reduce our taxes." - William ’65 ’69G and Cynthia ’66 Jachmich Goertemoeller

Making a planned gift is a wonderful way to show your support and appreciation for SUNY Oneonta and its mission while accommodating your own personal, financial, estate-planning, and philanthropic goals. With smart planning, you may actually increase the size of your estate and/or reduce the tax burden on your heirs. Just as important, you will know that you have made a meaningful contribution to SUNY Oneonta through your gift in your estate plan to State University of New York at Oneonta Foundation Corporation.

We recommend that you familiarize yourself with various gift options by exploring Ways to Give and What to Give. Then compare gift options and/or calculate how these gifts could work for you. And of course, please contact us for assistance or to discuss your personal situation and objectives.
