Planned Giving





There are a variety of vehicles that you can use to make a long-lasting commitment to Widener.

While all vehicles benefit Widener in some way, each can offer you different goals in terms of size of gift, tax savings, charitable tax deductions and income streams. We are happy to assist you with any questions you may have, but we suggest that you also consult with your attorney and/or other financial advisors when considering a gift in your will or estate plan.

Gifts such as scholarships, special recognition awards, faculty chairs, professorships, and general support are frequently funded by planned gifts. Any of these gifts can be used to benefit Widener, your gift may be used to add to the university’s endowment or unrestricted support of the university.

All planned giving donors are automatically honored as members of the Widener University Legacy Society.

If you have included Widener in your plans, or would like more information about how to leave your legacy with a planned gift, please contact Mike Felici at 610-499-1158 or email so that we may include and welcome you to the Widener Legacy Society, which recognizes individuals who have continued their relationship with Widener into the future.
