Planned Giving at Capital


Consider Capital University when you're developing an estate plan strategy with your financial advisor. If you think a planned gift could be right for you, please contact our Planned Giving office to learn more.


Sharing your legacy also qualifies you for one of two elite giving societies: the Heritage Society or Christ the Teacher Society.


These groups recognize and thank alumni, family, and friends who have made a bequest or planned gift to the university. Becoming a member connects you with a legacy of donors who will provide for generations of scholars to come.
