Planned gifts — donations made through provisions in wills, trusts, retirements accounts, insurance policies, and life income arrangements—have played an integral role in shaping Macalester into the exceptional liberal arts college that it is today. Over the years, the college's endowment has been built on the generosity of donors making planned gifts.
Today a new generation of donors helps secure Macalester's future by making planned gifts at all levels. For all of us who care deeply about Macalester, planned giving is a powerful way to make a lasting impact on the future of this extraordinary community.
