Discover the Benefits of Giving Wisely

Did you know there are creative ways to support Smith College? Ways in which Smith College, you and your loved ones all benefit at the same time?

Such giving techniques are called "planned gifts", because with thoughtful planning, you create win-win solutions for you and Smith College.

Tip of the Week

Variety is the spice of giving.

You can give almost any kind of highly appreciated property—such as closely-held stock, real estate, partnership interests, or valuable art—to a charitable remainder trust and receive major tax and income benefits.

So, all at once, you can:

  • Receive income for life
  • Take a charitable tax deduction
  • Avoid all capital gains tax
  • Support the mission of Smith College

You can even allow your assets to accumulate tax-free until you "turn on the income spigot" at retirement or some other future event, such as the start of your child's education.
