Planned Giving

Make a gift while taking care of your own financial needs. A planned gift will benefit the Department and provide income and security for you and your family. It can be structured to reflect your personal financial goals and your interests in Music & Dance. Making a bequest is simple and straightforward; there are various options such as naming the campus a beneficiary of your will or using retirement plans to make the most tax-efficient bequest. Contact Pamela Acheson, (413) 577-1402 or to discuss your gift.
