Planned Giving through a Bequest

What It Is

A planned gift is a financial contribution that is arranged in the present but will be allocated at a future date. These types of gifts are commonly donated through a will or trust, and are generally granted when the donor has passed away.

How It Works

Include the Phi Sigma Rho Foundation (PO Box 7021, Westchester, IL 60154) as a beneficiary in your estate plan. If desired, direct how you would like the gift to be used, for example: 

  • Scholarship Fund
  • Sarah Rogers McClure Memorial Scholarship Fund
  • LEAP Fund
  • Conference/Convention Fund

Or, you can make an unrestricted gift to support the Foundation, which will be used to support the organization's goals wherever the need is greatest.

Please let us know you've chosen to give to the Foundation through a bequest by contacting the Vice President of Donor Engagement. We would love to say thank you for your support and generosity!


  • Your assets remain in your control during your lifetime.
  • You can modify your bequest if your circumstances change.
  • You can direct your bequest to a particular purpose.
  • There is currently no limit on estate tax deductions that can be taken for charitable bequests.
  • You can have the satisfaction of knowing that your bequest will benefit the sisters of Phi Sigma Rho, helping to sustain the organization in the future.
