Giving to Reed

Making a Planned Gift to Reed College

Given the opportunity, most of us would like to leave a legacy that gives meaning to what we valued during our lifetime. Imagine the satisfaction of knowing that because of your generosity and planning, Reed students and faculty of the future will be grappling with the classics or finding new paths in science in an intellectually robust environment, just as they do today.

These pages are designed to help you shape a gift to Reed using a thoughtful and planned approach. We suggest strategies and resources that—when combined with your financial and estate objectives—create the most attractive tax and income benefits ... good for you, good for Reed.

The college will recognize your bequest or planned gift with membership in the Eliot Society.

If you have questions and want to learn more about these giving strategies, contact Kathy Saitas, director of planned giving, at 503/777-7573.

This guide is not intended to provide specific advice about your estate plan or to recommend a specific course of action. We suggest you consult your professional advisers before taking any action, then contact Reed's planned giving office to learn more about these giving strategies.
