The Living Legacy Society: Remembering the past and planning for future generations

Members of the Mount Saint Mary College Living Legacy Society choose to play a role in the lives of future generations of Mount students through the creation of a planned gift which may take the form of a bequest in their will, an insurance policy, a charitable remainder trust, or charitable lead trust. Mount Saint Mary College might not receive the actual gift for many years to come.

However, by making these intentions known, members provide the Mount with the opportunity to acknowledge their commitment now and help to ensure that their gift will be used in accordance with their wishes.

Please refer to Ways to Give for examples of planned gifts, Naming Opportunities (above) for information about recognition options, and our sample Letter of Intent for suggested language to use to notify the Mount of your intentions.

For more information on how you can join in shaping Mount Saint Mary College’s future, please contact the Office of College Advancement at 845-569-3215.
