Discover the Benefits of Giving Wisely
For over 80 years, planned gifts have strengthened Skidmore. Since founder Lucy Skidmore Scribner left nearly her entire estate to the College, over 800 Skidmore alumni, parents and friends have made a planned gift commitment and are recognized as part of the Legacy Society.
Explore the ways you can meet your financial goals and maximize the value of your giving to Skidmore with thoughtful gift planning.
Common gift planning arrangements:
- Gifts through your will or retirement account provide flexibility and do not affect your current cash flow.
- Real estate, personal property, and securities provide immediate tax benefits.
- Gifts that pay you income in return for your gift may allow you to make a more substantial gift than you thought possible.
- Retained life estate and charitable lead trusts can protect assets and significantly reduce tax liabilities.
