How Your Gift Helps

You are here

What do you want to support?

A planned gift can support whatever aspect of university life that is important to you. There are hundreds of possibilities.

Your gift advisor can give you a complete picture of Carnegie Mellon’s needs and priorities, and work with you to create a giving plan that will provide for permanent recognition and target a critical need.

Not only the University as a whole, but also any of our seven colleges, specific academic departments or even facilities like athletics or the library are eligible to receive your gift. Because the funds may not come to Carnegie Mellon for many years, the gift should meet an objective that will exist well into the future like scholarships, graduate fellowships, or faculty chairs. 

You might select a broad research topic, like energy conservation or environmental studies, or student-oriented programs such as internships or travel funds. Your gift can bear any name or phrase you want to see remembered.
