Named and Estate Giving

Donor Bench

Names such as Douglas, Jones, Dickens, Cook, and Reed grace the buildings that form the university’s physical structures. For all who are connected with Chicago State University, these names carry lifelong memories and meaning.

Several possibilities exist at Chicago State University for donors interested in making a lasting impact on CSU scholars with transformational gifts that name buildings and classrooms, or create named scholarships and endowed funds. Gifts can be made through your estate plan, stocks, and cash giving that can make your family name a part of daily campus life for students and faculty for years to come.

The financial requirements for naming opportunities differ university-wide, and there are many variables that affect the minimums. Some current negotiable opportunities include:

  • Park bench starting at $5,000
  • Named Scholarship fund starting at $5,000 annually
  • Named Classroom starting at $25,000

To learn more about what naming opportunities might suit you and your family, and how this giving can be made through your estate plan, contact our Director of Major Gifts, Max Kuecker, today. Read more about planning giving options here.
