Ways to Give

    Dave and Pat HoffsisAs we celebrate our milestone 150th anniversary, we are reminded of the invaluable and innumerable opportunities Dean College affords our students.  We are also reminded of the alumni, parents, trustees, faculty, staff, and friends who contribute their gifts of time, talent, and financial support—gifts that help secure and preserve Dean’s commitment to lifelong student success.

    One important and easy way to further Dean’s mission is through planned giving, which includes bequests and estate plan gifts, life income gifts, and charitable lead trusts.  Choosing the right planned gift depends on your personal circumstances and financial goals.  Dave Hoffsis and his wife, Pat, chose a charitable gift annuity, which provides them—and Dean—with financial security.

    A planned gift to Dean gives you the satisfaction of knowing that you are leaving a legacy of your gratitude from which others will benefit.  For more information about planned giving, please contact the Office of institutional Advancement at 508-541-1665.

    “My wife Pat and I had been looking for a way to financially assist Dean College in celebrating its 150th anniversary when we heard about the charitable gift annuity program.  In short, a charitable gift annuity is a simple contract between Dean and ourselves that offers a tax-advantaged way to deliver income to us during retirement while our gift will furnish support for Dean’s mission of providing students with quality teaching, personalized attention and leadership development opportunities—in other words, The Dean Difference!”
