Plan a Gift for Tomorrow
A gift to The Cooper Union can be part of a comprehensive financial plan. Let the Office of Planned Giving at The Cooper Union help you and your financial advisors develop a gift plan that meets your financial and philanthropic goals. A properly planned gift may help you reduce or eliminate capital gains, gift, and estate taxes. You may realize immediate income tax savings as well.
The Society of 1859
Named in commemoration of the year of The Cooper Union's founding, The Society of 1859 recognizes loyal and generous alumni and friends who have made planned gifts, bequest intentions, and gifts for endowment purposes. Although it was the extraordinary vision and benevolence of a single individual—Peter Cooper—that brought the college into being, it is through the farsightedness and generosity of many that the institution is sustained and kept vital. For more information, download The Society of 1859 Brochure (PDF).
