Planned Giving

Imagine your legacy. Plan today to make it happen.

You can make a meaningful gift that impacts hundreds of students and costs you nothing today when you make a planned gift to New England College. Planned gifts include charitable bequests, retirement plan beneficiaries. Charitable gift annuities and charitable trusts. The Danforth Society at New England College recognizes and honors individuals who have included NEC in their estate plans. Some of the most powerful gifts made to the College can be done through planned giving. Gift planning can offer creative, tax advantaged ideas to integrate your financial and philanthropic goals. Planned giving is smarter and easier than you might imagine. When you plan a gift or your estate you create a smart and sensible financial plan for yourself while affirming your belief in NEC. Your commitment will have tremendous impact on future generations of students.

What happens if I want to make a charitable bequest?
If you are having a Will prepared for the first time or revising your existing Will, you can easily add a Codicil (a supplement) to your existing Will that is otherwise satisfactory. In either case, the suggested language is straightforward:
“I give and bequeath to the Trustees of New England College, an educational corporation established by law at Henniker, New Hampshire, (here follows the amount in dollars, the percentage of the residuary estate, or an accurate description of the securities, real estate or other property given) to be used for the general purpose of the College.”

What if I want to set up an endowed scholarship?
You should contact the Office of Development to discuss your desired purpose so we may provide the appropriate language and documentation.
