The Easiest Way to Make an Impact
A Gift in Your Will or Living Trust
Interested in helping Colorado College create leaders who can change the world, but feel overwhelmed by the thought of writing another check or giving up your assets today? A simple, flexible and versatile way to ensure we can continue to provide the finest liberal arts education for years to come is a gift in your will or living trust, known as a charitable bequest.
By including a bequest to CC in your will or living trust, you are ensuring that we can continue our mission for years to come. Your gift also entitles your estate to an unlimited federal estate tax charitable deduction.
A Lasting Connection to CC
Julie Johnson and Preston Sargent met as Colorado College freshman in 1975. After marrying, having three children and moving to Seattle, the couple still stays connected to the college that played such a critical role in their lives.
In addition to their annual gifts, Julie and Preston have included a bequest in their will, making them members of the Barnes Legacy Society. By simply having their attorney include a few simple sentences in their will, called bequest language, they are ensuring their support continues long into the future.
As Julie says, "We certainly hope this gift is still a ways out, but we're aware of the importance of thinking through issues around retirement. There's no reason not to commit early to supporting the next generation of CC students."
