Creating a Bequest
A bequest in your will lets you pass any amount you wish to the College, free of estate tax. You can give cash or specific property, a dollar amount or percentage of your estate, with or without restrictions. If you wish to restrict your gift, we ask that you or your attorney contact the Office of Development to ensure the language is not too restrictive.
Charitable Gift Annuity
Charitable gift annuities allow individuals to make a tax-free contribution in the form of income. Individuals who wish to participate in this method of giving by promising to pay a given amount for the life of the annuitant.
Naming Adrian College as the beneficiary of a new or existing life insurance policy can enable you to make a larger gift than you may have ever thought possible. You can choose from a variety of ways to name Adrian College for a life insurance policy you already own.
- Primary Beneficiary: You can name Adrian College to be the sole beneficiary of the policy.
- Co-Beneficiary: You can name Adrian College to share in the proceeds with another charity or with others you choose.
- Contingent Beneficiary: Adrian College receives the proceeds only if one or more other beneficiaries have already passed away.
