The Cupola Society
Western New England University invites you to become a member of the Cupola Society, a special recognition for donors who have named the University as a beneficiary in their wills, trusts, or life insurance, or who have made other forms of planned gifts such as charitable gift annuities or real estate.
Planned gifts are an increasingly important source of Western New England University's success. By making a planned gift, you will help ensure that the University will have the financial resources to provide high-quality education for many years to come. Your planned gift may be directed towards anything from supporting a particular program to providing scholarship assistance for future generations. You can also give to the University in general through an unrestricted gift. Taking advantage of advanced planning is a proactive step towards ensuring that your gift intentions will be. These types of gifts can also lessen your tax burden and in certain cases pay you income for life.
Members of the Cupola Society receive Vision for the Future, the free biannual newsletter featuring estate planning and philanthropic concepts. Society members are invited to special yearly recognition events with the University president, and their names are printed in our Annual Report of Giving and other publications (if so desired), both in recognition of their generosity and to help inspire other donors.
If you have made arrangements for a planned gift, with your permission we would like to include you among the ranks of this special group of supporters. You can click here to fill out the form and send it to us.
If you would like more information about making a planned gift to Western New England University, or to learn more about how such a gift could benefit both you and this institution, please feel welcome to contact us.
