Gifts Through Your Estate Plan

Each year thousands of individuals designate that a portion of their assets be used for the benefit and support of charitable organizations. Estate plan gifts enable a person to make significant contributions which may not have been possible during one's lifetime. You may exercise your privilege to determine the final distribution of your estate, including a provision for Hamilton and other organizations of importance to you. Philanthropic bequests provide personal satisfaction and associated federal tax benefits.

Estate plan gifts can be tailored to meet your own specific personal and financial objectives. For example, you can express your bequest as a percentage of your estate or a specific dollar amount. A percentage bequest is an excellent method of protecting your intended beneficiaries in the event of a reduction in the size of your estate.

If you would like additional information about providing for Hamilton through your estate plan or are interested in receiving sample Will language, please contact Ben Madonia '74 or Joni Chizzonite via email at bmadonia@hamilton.edu or jchizzon@hamilton.edu, or by phone at 866-729-0317.
