Planned Giving

PLAN - an intention or decision about what one is going to do.

It’s in our name and at the core of how we help students navigate higher education opportunities. It is also one of the most significant ways that you can support Opportunity Plan.


OPI accepts and encourages many kinds of planned or legacy gifts. Bequests and beneficiary designations of insurance or retirement accounts are common.
