How to Give to the Campaign
There are four ways to give to the College's Campaign:
- Cash Gifts are usually made in the form of a pledge payable over several years or a convenient period of time. Gifts can also be any asset that can be converted to cash, such as a valuable art collection.
- Life Insurance Gifts can be new policies or old ones for which the MCLA Foundation is a beneficiary in whole or in part. Older adults sometimes have paid up policies that were purchased many years ago that can be provided as a contribution.
- Gift Annuities and Trusts are a wonderful way to make a contribution because the donor (or others as determined by the donor) is able to receive a very attractive income for life. This giving technique is especially useful for those who may wish to make a large gift but cannot afford to contribute too much of their retirement nest egg unless there is a solid, dependable return.
- Estate Plans are perhaps the easiest wasy to give because the donor contributes a percentage of their estate through an irrevocable provision in a will or living trust. We like to think that everyone could leave at least 1% or more of an estate to Massachusetts College of Liberal Arts.
