Update on Class Giving: as REVISED September, 4, 2011
Nazareth will be providing us with updated numbers in September. In the meantime, they’ve agreed to count as part of our five-year class gift any donations, revocable or irrevocable, identified in our estate planning. That will make a huge difference in what we are able to achieve by our 50th reunion. I know that several of you have already included Nazareth in your wills. It is very important, that if Nazareth is in your will, you contact Melissa Head at (585) 389-2179 or firstname.lastname@example.org to let her know about your gift. That is the only way it can be counted toward our class goal. It would be helpful for tracking purposes if you also let me know, email@example.com, when you’ve made that contact.
Also, in September, you will be receiving a brochure from Nazareth that talks about several different ways of giving, including charitable gift annuities. At our age, a $10000.00 gift would yield a payout of $550.00 a year for up to 20 years. It’s one option that’s at least worth exploring with your legal or financial advisors.
In October, Nazareth has scheduled a seminar on planned giving. It will held on Tuesday, October 18th in the Pallodoro Lounge in the Arts Center from 3:30 – 5:00 PM and will be followed by a wine and cheese reception. I urge you to attend and check out the possibilities.
