Ways to Maximize Your 50th Reunion Gift
To help you maximize your gift, consider making all three types of gifts.
Below is an example. Think of the multiplier effect:
$5,000 Smith Fund gift (which can be paid over five years) + $10,000 annuity
+ $10,000 bequest gift (50% of a $20,000 bequest) = $25,000 gift
The Grécourt Society
Alumnae and friends who have included Smith in their estate plans through a will, trust, retirement plan, life insurance policy or life income gift are eligible to join The Grécourt Society.
