Dickinson College was created explicitly for high purposes- to prepare young people, by means of a useful education in the liberal arts and sciences, for engaged lives of citizenship and leadership in the service of society.
Our founders intended Dickinson graduates to use their liberal arts education as a powerful agent of change to advance the lot of humankind. We expect no less today.
The philanthropic planning you do today, that includes Dickinson in the future, will help this mission as well as provide resources for our incredible faculty and motivated students, all the while creating a legacy of generosity for you and your family.
Benefits of Giving
In addition to supporting the mission of Dickinson, a planned gift can provide to you substantial tax advantages, especially on gifts of stocks and real estate. The total income, estate, and capital gains tax savings and the probate expense savings can come close to the amount transferred. The benefits include:
- Income Tax Deductions
- Reduced Capital Gains Taxes
- Reduced Estate Tax
- Income for Life
Simply by taking advantage of incentives the IRS provides, you and your advisor can craft a gift that fits your needs, as well as the needs of Dickinson. A planned gift makes it possible for you, your loved ones, and Dickinson to all benefit.
We want to be sure that we can fulfill your wishes. If you have any questions, please contact:
