Every gift counts.
Gifts to the AMCAT Fund honor the rich tradition of academic and athletic excellence of Anna Maria College and shows a commitment to providing resources to our student-athletes, with each gift having a positive and lasting impact on their ability to succeed in the classroom, in competition, and in the community
A charitable bequest through your will is the easiest way to provide a lasting gift to Anna Maria College. You can choose to leave specific, named assets (such as property or goods) to the College, a specific sum of money, or a certain percentage of your estate (or the residual after all other needs are met). You can also designate your gift for a specific purpose or use the gift to endow a named scholarship fund. By making a provision in your will to leave a financial gift, or a donation of property or goods to Anna Maria College, you will perpetuate your support for the College.
You can designate Anna Maria College the owner/beneficiary of an IRA, 401(K), 403(b) or other pension or retirement plan. By naming Anna Maria College, you will ensure that your estate will receive an estate tax charitable deduction for this gift. You can designate a specific amount, or a percentage of the death benefit, and you can restrict your gift to a specific purpose, or make an unrestricted gift to the College.
You can make Anna Maria College the owner/beneficiary of a new or existing life insurance policy, and your estate will receive an estate tax deduction for your gift. A younger person, who wants to benefit Anna Maria College can use a portion of his or her annual gifts to pay premiums on an insurance policy that benefits the College. Or if an existing life insurance policy no longer serves the purpose for which it was created, it could be an ideal asset to transfer to Anna Maria College.
You may give your house, farm or vacation home to Anna Maria College. You will receive a tax deduction and retain the right to use the property for your own use during your lifetime, after which the property then becomes fully owned by the College.
