Why Have Hamilton Donors
Been Pleased with Their CRUTs?

The following example demonstrates what can happen over the lifetime of a CRUT.

Fifteen years ago, a Hamilton alumnus established a CRUT with $1 million. By the time the trust terminates on a specific date this fall, the donors will have received $1.1 million in payments, and current and future Hamilton students will receive financial aid from the $1.9 million added to the scholarship named for the donors.

Of course results will vary with investment cycles; however, this example reveals the powerful potential benefits of a CRUT.
