Meet the Challenge,
Make a Greater Impact

JSG hero

The Jackson School of Geosciences invites you to join the first-of-its-kind Legacy Challenge for the school.

Here’s how a single gift can make a greater impact. If you document a new future gift of $100,000 or more through your estate plan, the Jackson School of Geosciences will make an immediate donation (while funds last) to the department, program, project or area in the school that you choose! Your gift will make an impact today and a lasting one in the future.

The process is easy. Complete this simple form to initiate your planned gift. Or you can download and complete an Estate Intention Letter and email it to one of our experienced giving advisors — Andrew West, Kent Kostka or Katy Fendrich-Turner — to get started. With no burden on your pocketbook today, you can provide support to the people and programs within the Jackson School of Geosciences that mean the most to you.

Your Gift Makes a Difference

Ed Duncan, B.S. ’79, M.A. ’87, and his wife Karen have invested in the future of the Jackson School by including the school in their estate plans. “The earth is being challenged, and earth scientists have a responsibility to help. We want those smart kids who will make a difference to become students at the Jackson School,” said Ed Duncan.
