Elements of a Sound Gift Agreement

November 01, 2021

Targeted philanthropy can renew higher education by promoting excellence and intellectual diversity, one gift at a time. The Fund for Academic Renewal (FAR) guides donors and their advisors through every step of the higher education giving process. FAR created the Elements of a Sound Gift Agreement to help donors draft gift agreements that articulate their mission, set expectations, and anticipate changes. View this short guide here. To request a complimentary print copy, email FAR Program Associate Emily Rees at or call (202) 467-6787.
