"You build on the strengths of what people have done before you. And you pay tribute to people along the way."
- H. Mebane Turner
The Turner Society recognizes alumni and friends who have made a commitment to the University of Baltimore through planned or deferred gifts. Planned gifts have become increasingly important to UB's growth. Whether it's creating scholarships, building libraries or endowing professorships, this support opens doors and transforms lives every day.
Membership in the Turner Society is extended to individuals who have arranged for a deferred gift to the University of Baltimore Foundation in any of the following ways:
- Bequest in a will or revocable trust
Leave a legacy for your favorite UB program, department or college without affecting your current assets
- Beneficiary of an IRA or other qualified retirement plan
Provide a future gift to UB at a minimal cost to your heirs
- Charitable remainder trust or gift annuity
Receive current tax benefits while retaining an income stream for yourself or other beneficiaries
- Life insurance policy
Make a significant gift with a modest investment
- Remainder interest in personal residence
Receive a tax deduction now and continue to live in your home
- Charitable lead trust
Provide income to the UB Foundation now and pass the principal of the asset back to your heirs later at reduced tax cost.
- Invitations to attend special events and seminars
- Recognition in the UB Foundation annual report and in various newletters (We respect the wishes of those who choose to give anonymously.)
- Information about UB programs that interest you and opportunities to meet faculty, students and administrators
