The Legacy Society
The Legacy Society honors alumni and friends who have invested in the university’s future through documented deferred or planned gifts, of any amount, in support of George Mason University. These gifts include bequests, trusts, annuities, and other plans in which the George Mason University Foundation has been named beneficiary.
Checks should be made payable to the George Mason University Foundation, Inc., and sent to the law school’s Advancement and Alumni Relations office.
To ensure that your gift is credited to the law school, please note Scalia Law on your check and enclose our printable giving form .
Your gift can be doubled, tripled, or even quadrupled through a corporate matching gift program. Find out whether your company, or your spouse’s company, matches gifts. Your human resources office can also give you more information.
If your company does match gifts, please obtain from your company's human resources office or community relations office a matching gift form and guidelines for matching gifts. Complete your portion of the matching gift form, and mail your gift and the form to the law school.
This gift entitles you to a charitable deduction for the fair market value of the securities and may allow you to avoid capital gains tax. To transfer stock or mutual funds to the law school electronically, please provide your broker with the University’s broker information and notify the law school’s Advancement Office of the following: name of your broker and company, type and shares of stock being transferred, approximate date of transfer, and purpose of gift.
Charitable IRA Rollovers
For those aged 70½ or older, it is still possible to make tax-favored charitable gifts from traditional and Roth IRA accounts. An IRA rollover is a simple and easy way to use your individual retirement account to reduce taxes and help the law school.
Please talk to your tax advisor about the advantage of directly transferring gifts from your retirement plan to the George Mason University Foundation for the Antonin Scalia Law School. Your accountant or another financial advisor can also help you determine the optimum amount to give from retirement plan accounts under federal and state tax laws. To help us track your IRA gift, please inform us of your intent to make a gift from your IRA.
For more information on making a charitable IRA rollover gift, please visit the Foundation website.
We would be happy to talk with you or your financial advisor about opportunities to support the law school through planned or deferred giving. If you have questions about endowed or planned gifts, please contact us.
