Yes! Gordon College has many plans for Gifts That Pay You Income. You can also provide income for a child, a grandchild, a parent, or a friend. That income can increase cash flow now and/or during retirement, pay for a college education, provide income for aging parents, or perhaps assist a loved one with special needs. You can also provide income to Gordon College by using a Charitable Lead Trust.
An easy and low-cost way to make a gift to Gordon College is to include us in your will or revocable trust. Gifts by Will are a major source of endowment support at Gordon College. Each individual legacy contributes to our financial strength and ability to meet the needs of our students and their families. If you have not already done so, please consider putting Gordon College in your will or revocable trust. See our Bequest Language page for samples of how to do this. You can also designate Gordon College the beneficiary of Life Insurance, annuities, or Retirement-Plan Benefits.
While cash or a check is a simple way to make a gift, you might want to consider the following:
|Gift Type||Possible Benefits|
|Appreciated securities, such as stocks, bonds, or mutual funds||
|Transfer of residential, commercial, or undeveloped real estate||
|Donate an interest in closely held or family business stock||
|Give us tangible personal property like art, books, or collectibles||
|Make Gordon College the owner and beneficiary of life insurance or annuities||
Most often the answer to this is “yes”!! Many donors direct that their gifts be used to fund programs or remember a loved one. Please be sure to discuss this when you make your gift.
If your gift is a bequest commitment, or through life insurance, life-income plans, or lead trusts, you will become a permanent member of the Clarendon Society, Gordon’s Giving Society. Of course, we will also honor any requests for gifts to be anonymous.
Gifts are made for many different reasons. Often gifts are made:
