Have you provided for Kenyon College in your will ?
If so, you have made a planned gift. A planned gift is one you arrange during your lifetime with the benefit to Kenyon deferred to a future date. Another example is naming Kenyon as beneficiary of a life insurance policy or of an IRA or 401 (k)/403(b) plan. Such gifts for Kenyon's future are a vital source for assuring the financial strength, continuity, and growth of the College. They can also serve as crucial elements of your estate planning and tax savings strategies.
Some planned gifts can be arranged now using assets that will eventually pass to Kenyon but from which you can draw income during your lifetime. Such life income gifts include charitable gift annuities and charitable remainder trusts.
Life income gifts can often be structured to substantially increase the income you are receiving from the assets while also providing you a significant current income tax deduction.
Kenyon welcomes those who create planned gifts into its George Wharton Marriott Society to recognize them for their thoughtfulness. Marriott Park, the central campus grounds just within the gates, was named in 1826 for George Wharton Marriott, one of the earliest and most devoted of the English friends of Kenyon College. Currently, there are over four hundred members.
