Our MissionBeginning with Ashley Johnson's first request for a donation to go toward the construction of the "Main Building" in 1893, friends have willingly sent monetary gifts to support the work of Johnson University. In more recent years, friends have extended their support with planned gifts - gifts designated in their wills and living trusts, through charitable gift annuities, charitable remainder trusts, life estate transfers, and the like.
To assist our friends in their gift planning, our purpose is to promote biblical stewardship, the inclusion of God's Kingdom in one's estate plan, and the eternal significance of participating in long-term Christian ministry. Unless requested otherwise, we recognize those who include the University in a planned gift with a membership in the Johnson Legacy Society and with special recognition in the Johnson magazine.
We hope this website will provide helpful information as you consider making a planned gift to Johnson University. Please call us to discuss how we can help you meet your personal goals.
