When you make a planned gift to Colby, such as a charitable gift annuity or bequest, your generosity bridges the gap between the past and the future of the College, creating a legacy that will allow generations of students to benefit from the Colby experience. Gifts by will, or other estate planning techniques, are a cornerstone of Colby's future endowment growth. The College is deeply grateful to each Colby Legacy Society (formerly Willows Society) member for this special expression of loyalty, confidence, and support.
After you have made provision for your family and loved ones, please consider making a bequest to Colby as part of your estate plan. The Colby Legacy Society recognizes individuals who have made special gifts through their estate commitments. There is no minimum or maximum gift amount required-Colby is thankful for all estate gifts, whatever their size.
Membership in the Colby Legacy Society involves no dues or obligations of any kind, other than to notify the College that you have included Colby in your estate plans. Colby Legacy Society members are honored at special events and enjoy the knowledge that their sound and generous financial decisions will benefit the College and secure their legacy at Colby. Those alumni, parents, faculty, staff, and friends who have honored Colby through their wills, trusts, or planned gifts help to ensure that Colby can continue to offer a world-class liberal arts education for generations to come.
