Oak Trees at Angelo State

Founded in 2005, the Oaks Society honors and recognizes people who have chosen to benefit the university through charitable gift plans.

The Oaks Society represents service and generosity and has special meaning at ASU. In 1949, oak trees were planted in front of what is now the Mayer Administration Building in memory and honor of each of the 30 former students who lost their lives in World War II. In their own ways, Oaks Society members have opportunities to leave their own legacies at ASU.

All financial situations are unique, and making good decisions requires prudent planning. Wise decisions while planning a gift can maximize the benefits to both you and Angelo State. We can identify the types of giving opportunities best suited for you.

Many ASU students are benefiting from gift annuities, charitable trusts and other deferred gifts. Consider joining our other donors, friends and alumni who are using planned gifts to make a difference in the lives of the next generation of ASU students.

Gift Planning

Create a Lasting Legacy at Angelo State

Planned gifts from our alumni and friends are crucial investments in the future of our institution and provide an opportunity for you to leave a lasting legacy for Angelo State University. 

By including ASU in your estate plans, you ensure that our institution continues to grow and advance for future generations of students. Gifts may be unrestricted or may be designated to support the ASU area of your choice.

Beginning Your Gift Plan

Include ASU in your estate plans using one of the following planned gifts:

  • Designation Gifts
    The easiest gift to make, designation gifts name Angelo State as the beneficiary of your will, retirement account, annuity or other account.
  • Remainder Trusts
    Once your gift is established, ASU agrees to pay a fixed amount each year to one or two beneficiaries for life. 
  • Charitable Trusts
    Support the university and receive valuable tax benefits while continuing to provide for yourself or your loved one.
  • Property Gifts
    Share your assets by making a gift of real estate, securities or other property as part of your legacy to Angelo State University.
