Video: The impact of planned giving at WVU

Year-after-year,  planned gifts continue to help push West Virginia University forward, making a lasting impact on its students and the state of West Virginia. For example, the Arlen G. & Louise Stone Swiger Fellowship was established with a planned gift back in 1980 and has provided almost $10 million in support for Ph.D. students to attend WVU over the past 40 years. 

Meanwhile, the Bernard L. Judy Capital Improvements Endowment, which was created by a planned gift in 2001, has provided almost $500,000 in support of the Mechanical & Aerospace Engineering department at the Statler College o f Engineering and Mineral Resources .

The video above profiles two students who have also benefitted from the generosity of planned giving donors: Caroline Leadman, a recipient of the Lynette Feeney Memorial Scholarship, and Julia Hillman, a recipient of the Gruine Robinson Scholarship.
