The 50th anniversary of your graduation from Trinity is a time to become reacquainted with the College, renew friendships, and celebrate the Trinity family. As you return to campus for your class reunion, we hope you will consider how your reunion gift can help make the Trinity experience as unique and meaningful for today’s students as it was for you. Please visit the Gift Planning Web site for more information.
Members of the 50th Reunion class are invited to:
- Support current operations of the College by giving a stretch gift to the Trinity Fund pledged over five years, and
- Make a meaningful capital gift to the College, which is designated to a specific purpose, decided upon by the 50th Reunion Committee, and
- Join The Elms Society by including Trinity in your estate plan.
By making Trinity part of your estate plan, you can provide a gift to the College as a lasting legacy of your support and as a part of your Reunion contribution. Some estate provisions can be completed in less than five minutes, often with a few simple keystrokes.
- Donate assets in return for life income.
Charitable remainder trusts and charitable gift annuities provide secure lifetime income with annual payouts of 5% or more, with the remaining value coming to Trinity upon termination.
- Name Trinity in your will or living trust.
The traditional revocable gift is a testamentary bequest or a provision naming Trinity in your living trust. In either, you can leave the College a portion of your estate, either a specific dollar amount or a percentage distribution. When you write a new will or living trust with your attorney or amend an existing document, consider including Trinity as a designated charity.
- Make Trinity a partial beneficiary of your retirement account (IRA, 401(k), 403(b), etc.).
Beneficiary designations are a great way to provide for Trinity from your estate quickly and easily, without the need for attorney. You can file a simple form with your plan administrator, or change your beneficiary allocation in minutes online at no cost to you.
- Make Trinity a partial beneficiary of your life insurance policy or donor-advised fund.
The procedure for making these revocable gifts is similar to making Trinity a beneficiary of a retirement account.
