The Grécourt Society

What is The Grécourt Match?

A generous member of the class of 1964 has committed $1 million for financial aid to serve as a pool of matching funds. While the Match lasts, every $10 of your new planned gift will be matched by $1 from this pool, up to a limit of $10,000 per match.

For Example:

  • You make a new planned gift to Smith after July 1, 2020, such as:
    • Document a bequest in your will.
    • Make Smith a beneficiary of your retirement plan.
    • Fund a charitable gift annuity that pays you a fixed income for life.
  • Your gift can be for any purpose, although financial aid is especially welcome.
  • Suppose the gift is $50,000.
    • $5,000 of matching funds goes into the Smith endowment for financial aid immediately.
    • If you’re in your 50th Reunion cycle (beginning at your 46th), your gift can count for Reunion credit. You will also be welcomed into The Grécourt Society.

Your gift makes a powerful impact now, and a powerful impact later.
