Robert's Corner

Robert D. PetersonGreetings from New Mexico State University! Thank you for visiting the NMSU Foundation's Planned Giving website. We deeply appreciate those of you who have already made—or are considering—a planned or estate gift to the NMSU Foundation that supports New Mexico State University.

Planned gifts, whatever the amount, provide critical support that enables NMSU to expand the frontiers of knowledge through our land-grant mission of teaching, research and service.

It would be an honor to listen to your Aggie and family story. Perhaps you would like to support an existing fund or program, or to create a new named endowment (e.g., scholarship, professorship, Chair). Please consider me a partner, along with your personal financial planner, to help you take the steps that will make the dreams of Aggies come true.

I would be delighted to chat with you about becoming a member of our 1888 Society, established by the NMSU Foundation for the purpose of recognizing those who have remembered the university through a planned or estate gift. Participation in the Society can be an inspirational experience, and has proven to encourage others to look toward the future and consider philanthropy.

I hope you enjoy the posted copy of our latest "Look to the Future" 1888 Society newsletter, with stories about our donors and their passion to give back.

The greatness of our university begins with friends like you who are committed to our land grant mission. Your gifts will pave the way for a progressively vibrant university, increase Aggie pride, and impact the future of our students and our community.

NMSU is grateful beyond measure for your leadership support and generosity at NMSU. Your example inspires us in all we do.
