Many donors choose to remember Cumberland in their estate plans. Gifts made through estate planning have a transformational impact on the university, preserve your legacy and minimize tax burdens for your heirs. At Cumberland University we encourage two simple types of planned gifts: bequests and beneficiary designations. These plans can be made by updating your Will or the beneficiary information on a retirement plan or life insurance policy. For additional assistance, please contact the Office of Advancement at (615) 547-1269.
