Many happy returns

Marion Clausen Gray ’54 wanted to make a special gift for her 50th reunion, so after making her annual-fund gift, she used appreciated stock to fund a charitable gift annuity. Along with a charitable tax deduction, Marcie and husband Donald will enjoy a lifetime stream of income from their Skidmore annuity—and a significantly increased yield than she was receiving from her securities.

Catherine Green ’54 was pleased to know that she can count on her Skidmore charitable gift annuity to provide secure, fixed income payments to her for life. The annuity enabled Kit to make a special 50th-reunion gift in addition to her annual-fund donation. She was glad to have the immediate charitable tax deduction, too!

Mary Hamilton McLaughlin ’54 is glad that payments from her Skidmore charitable gift annuity will never vary in amount and that her annuity is taxed very favorably. “It’s a great gift that keeps on giving back to me!” says Mary. “I was surprised at how generous the annuity rates are right now. And my annuity will help our 50th-reunion gift totals.”


Find out more about the gift that provides secure, lifetime income as well as important tax benefits: the Skidmore College Charitable Gift Annuity. Call the Office of Gift Planning at 1-800-584-0115, ext. 5655, or e-mail plannedgiving@skidmore.edu.
