Planned Giving

A planned, or deferred gift—such as a gift of life insurance, or a bequest made through your estate or trust—enables you to support GSO at levels you may not have thought possible, while providing financial security for you and your family. There are other gift strategies, with tax advantages, you may wish to explore. We will be happy to work with you and your legal or financial counsel to develop a plan that will benefit you and GSO.

Become a Corporate Affiliate

GSO is recognized as Rhode Island’s center for marine studies and cutting-edge research and outreach. The Corporate Affiliates Program provides business leaders an inside perspective into the groundbreaking research, technology and initiatives taking place across the campus.

By affiliating with GSO—the “academic anchor” of Rhode Island’s blue economy—a corporation can leverage the strengths of a great research university. It’s a tailor-made opportunity to engage with our faculty, researchers and graduate students for mutual collaboration.
