Various Annuities

These gifts pay you income now and preserve the principal for later use for Spelman

Bequest intentions provide a living testament to your desire to invest in generations young women who sustain our tradition of achievement. Donors of a certain age who document their commitment by naming Spelman as beneficiary in their estate plans become members of the Guardian Society.   

Gifts of Appreciated Securities

Sometimes more valuable than outright gifts, these contributions give you an immediate tax deduction and do not incur capital gains. The sale of these transferred securities enables Spelman to support needed initiatives.

Gifts of Real Property

When you deed you home/vacation home, undeveloped property, or commercial building to Spelman, these gifts also give you an immediate tax deduction and do not incur capital gains. Spelman may either use your property for the College or sell it and apply the proceeds to achieve its strategic goals.

If you are interested in these and other ways to give, contact Institutional Advancement at 1-866-512-1690.
