Founders Society

You can demonstrate your confidence in the University's mission, belief in its future, and commitment to its longevity by joining other distinguished alumni and friends who have chosen to support Point Park through legacy gifts.

If you have already included Point Park University in a bequest or other planned gift, we hope you will let us know.  Your willingness to be listed as a member of the Founders Society encourages others to follow your example and provides a way for us to recognize and thank you during your lifetime. 

How to Join

The following types of commitments, confirmed in writing, qualify you for membership in the Founders Society:

  • a bequest provision in your will;
  • a life-income gift that names Point Park University as a remainder beneficiary, such as a charitable remainder trust or a charitable gift annuity;
  • a charitable lead trust that provides income to Point Park University for your lifetime or a term of years;
  • a gift of qualified retirement plan assets, such as an IRA, 401(k) or 403(B);
  • a gift of life insurance.

Contact Rick Haskins, vice president of development and alumni relations, at rhaskins@pointpark.edu or 412-392-8097 for more information.
