Gifts Anyone Can Make
Did you know there are ways to support Skidmore College that don't affect your current lifestyle or your family's security?
You can support Skidmore with gifts that don't impact the way you live by designating Skidmore College to receive estate assets in the future, or by making immediate gifts to us of assets that are "out of sight and out of mind."
We call these "Gifts Anyone Can Make" because anyone can make them now without impacting cash flow, lifestyle, or family security.
- You can make a gift that costs you nothing during your lifetime.
- You can make a gift that leaves your cash flow and current financial planning unchanged.
- You don't have to use cash to make your gift; you can "buy low and give high" by making your gift with appreciated securities instead.
- You can give an asset you no longer need or want.
