50th Reunion Giving
Your 50th Reunion is a time to remember and to celebrate your Haverford experience, to reconnect with old friends and to become acquainted with the College today. In honor of this milestone, we encourage you to consider how your reunion gift will help to perpetuate Haverford for future generations of students.
What Makes up the 50th Reunion Gift?
There are three categories of gifts that count toward 50th Reunion giving—current gifts, life income gifts and deferred gifts. We encourage you to consider making both a current and a life income or a deferred gift in honor of your 50th Reunion.
There are two kinds of current gifts and all are credited to the 50th: Contributions to Annual Giving and other outright gifts.
- Gifts to Annual Giving are the top priority for the College and can be made any time during the year of your 50th Reunion.
Life Income Gifts
- Charitable Gift Annuities (minimum gift $25,000)
- Charitable Remainder Trusts (minimum gift of $100,000 if Haverford serves as trustee)
Deferred Gifts that will be paid to the College at a future date include:
- Will provisions
- Beneficiary designations for retirement accounts, annuities and fully paid life insurance policies

A charitable remainder trust provides you or other named individuals income each year for life or a period not exceeding 20 years from assets you give to the trust you create.
You fund this type of trust with cash or appreciated assets—and may qualify for a federal income tax charitable deduction when you itemize. You can also make additional gifts; each one also qualifies for a tax deduction. The trust pays you, each year, a variable amount based on a fixed percentage of the fair market value of the trust assets. When the trust terminates, the remaining principal goes to Haverford as a lump sum.
