What legacy will you leave at Chapman University?

Members of the Chapman University Town & Gown Legacy Circle have chosen to leave their legacy at Chapman University by including Town & Gown in their estate plans. Whether it’s through a bequest, trust, gift annuity, pooled income fund or life insurance policy, legacy gifts are a powerful way to plan for the future while supporting the mission of Town & Gown.

Legacy Circle members ensure that Town & Gown will continue providing vital support to Chapman University through scholarships, endowments, campus improvement and beautification projects and more.  It’s an investment in a bright future not just for Town & Gown, but for the university as a whole.

Some Legacy Circle members choose to leave an exact dollar amount while others specify a percentage of their estate. There is no minimum amount and the details of your estate gift will always be strictly confidential between you and Chapman University.

If you let us know about your bequest, we would like to add your name to our Legacy Circle plaque in Beckman Hall Room 401. A legacy gift will also qualify you for membership in the university’s prestigious Charles C. Chapman Legacy Society, allowing us to recognize your generosity and inspiring others to give.
