You probably have a plan for your career, your family, your retirement - or maybe you feel guilty because you know you should. What about a plan for your giving?
Without pinching your budget now, you can create a fine legacy by naming Kenyon in your will, or as a beneficiary of a retirement plan or life insurance policy. Wouldn’t that be a great way to create an endowed scholarship fund? Making a gift to Kenyon through your will or retirement plan can also lessen the tax bite, leaving more of your dollars to be directed as you choose.
Do you or your loved ones need secure, tax-advantaged income for life? Life income gifts to Kenyon, such as charitable gift annuities and charitable remainder trusts, provide a lifetime stream of income and also include a substantial gift to the College. And if you own valuable assets that generate little or no income, we’ll show you how to turn those assets into a gift which gives you significant income plus an income tax deduction right now.
The George Wharton Marriott Society recognizes those who are making these kinds of gifts to Kenyon. Marriott Park, the central campus grounds just within the gates, was named in 1826 for George Wharton Marriott, one of the earliest and most devoted English friends of Kenyon. Why not join the hundreds of Marriott Society members – your friends and fellow alumni – who are making these great gifts to Kenyon College?
