Annual Giving

Planning Your Gift

Unitrust Results Demonstrate Benefits of Planned Gifts

Committee on Development Meeting
December 7, 2012

Donors support Hamilton because they believe in the mission of the College. Asset values, tax rates and personal planning objectives determine when donors complete contributions.

The recent termination of a 15-year term-certain Hamilton charitable remainder unitrust, which made payments to the donors based upon an annual valuation, demonstrates the benefits of planned gifts:

  • $1 million dollars contributed in trust;
  • $1.1 million in beneficiary payments, taxed advantageously;
  • $1.9 million added to the donors' family scholarship.

You know the best time to make a contribution for maximum benefit to you and your family. Please call upon us when you have questions.
