Choosing to Do More for Haverford
Our daughter, Adrienne, graduated from Haverford in 1997 and we are grateful for the fine education that she received at the College. The Honor Code and the emphasis on social justice at Haverford are particularly important to us. We both attended large Midwestern universities that could never offer the kind of individual attention from the excellent, caring faculty that Adrienne found at Haverford.
Following her graduation from Haverford, Adrienne earned her law degree at the University of Washington. She currently works for Manhattan Legal Services, where she helps low-income disabled New Yorkers with civil legal needs like housing, public benefits, health care, special education, and accommodations under the Americans with Disabilities Act.
We have supported Parent Giving over many years to help provide Haverford's unique opportunities to current students. After we retired, we decided to do more for Haverford. We felt that a charitable gift annuity was most appropriate for our financial situation because it provides future funds to the College while assuring a lifetime income for the two of us at an attractive payout rate based on our ages.
This made sense for us in retirement, though it also could play a part in comprehensive estate planning. We did not have appreciated securities with which to fund the gift, but that option may have even greater tax benefits for donors.
We encourage other Haverford parents and alumni to consider a charitable gift annuity or one of several other forms of planned gifts to Haverford. By doing so, you will extend the College's positive impact to future generations of students. You will also strengthen your ties to the Haverford community by becoming a member of the Jacob P. Jones Society.
