Giving Through Your Estate to Bennington College

Giving Through Your Estate

You are here

A charitable gift from your estate is a favored method of giving that enables you to achieve your financial goals and benefit Bennington in ways that may not be possible through lifetime gifts.

If your estate is subject to estate tax, giving through your estate plan generates a charitable estate tax deduction, which may result in substantial tax savings. You may direct all or a portion of your estate to Bennington.
