Annual Giving

Planning Your Gift

Helping Donors Meet Philanthropic and 
Personal Planning Objectives

At Hamilton we describe a planned gift as a contribution made with the right property, at the most opportune time, in the most advantageous form for maximum benefit to the College and the donor. Planned gifts may be outright, in trust, by Will or in some combination.

Hamilton has a long-standing tradition of bequests, and a more recent tradition of life payment contributions. During the past 25 years, more than $60 million of life payment gifts have been completed. The College has developed expertise in this area and is supported by Kaspick & Company, one of the most prominent firms in the country in the management of planned gifts.

In addition, Hamilton is equally adept at handling gifts of appreciated property of all kinds, including real estate, closely-held stock, restricted stock, partnership interests, retirement plan assets, and tangible personal property: Art, antiques, furniture, rare books, manuscripts, personal papers, maps, documents, carpets, and collections of written and recorded music.
