Gifts for the Future. The cornerstone gift of the Bell Society is the bequest intention, a gift in your will or revocable living trust. This future gift can take the form of a dollar amount or a percentage of your estate. Moreover, you can name Peddie as a beneficiary of your retirement plan, life insurance policy or other accounts. All of these result in federal estate tax deductions.

Peddie offers a wide variety of planned gift options including charitable gift annuities, charitable remainder trusts and the Peddie Pooled Income Fund.
I know that regardless of whether it was the $25 I gave when I first graduated from college or the more substantial amounts I continue to give as my means increase, every single dollar helps my alma mater to provide future students with the same wonderful experience I was so fortunate to have.
