Welcome to Gift Planning
Since its founding in 1857, Lake Forest College has benefited from the generosity of alumni and friends. At its inception, the College received thousands of dollars from members of the Presbyterian community who founded both the school and the town of Lake Forest. Over the next 160 years, local residents established a tradition of including the College in their estate plans. Gradually, alumni have also made bequests, established annuities, or created trust agreements that included Lake Forest College as a beneficiary.
Making a planned gift is a wonderful way to show your support and appreciation for Lake Forest College while still meeting your personal, financial, and retirement goals. With smart planning, you may actually increase the size of your estate and/or reduce the tax burden on your heirs. At the same time, you will have the satisfaction of making a meaningful contribution to Lake Forest College.
