alumni members greeting each other

Planned gifts made by alumni and friends provide critical support for Clark’s education mission — creating scholarships, improving teaching and research, and revitalizing our campus.

From Jonas Clark’s 1900 bequest, which created our undergraduate college, to gifts made today using creative structures and assets, planned gifts let you stretch your philanthropic impact to leave a lasting legacy at Clark. Start here to learn about creative ways to support Clark.

Clark’s Office of Planned Giving can help you maximize the impact of your charitable giving. We work with you and your financial and legal advisers to thoughtfully:

  • Integrate your philanthropy with your long-term planning for financial security and the needs of your family
  • Take full advantage of tax incentives to stretch your charitable dollars
  • Use creative gift vehicles or unusual assets to support Clark

Figuring out a planned giving strategy that best fits your charitable, financial, and family goals can be overwhelming. We’re here to help you understand your options. Please contact us for a confidential conversation.
