Getting the Maximum for the Minimum – IRA Rollover
Carol Adams Svoboda'57 and Frank A. Svoboda '55
Gifts to Lawrence are at the top of our list for two reasons. First, we know that without alumni giving, Lawrence could not keep providing a quality liberal arts education for future generations. Also, we realize how fortunate we were to have received a liberal arts education. That education played a huge part in shaping and enriching our lives, as well as providing us with lifelong friendships.
Like many people of our generation, we started contributing to our IRAs years ago, and over time, these contributions have greatly increased in value. Unfortunately, IRA money withdrawn or left to one's heirs is subject to income tax—both federal and state, and possibly estate taxes. That is why we made the decision to contribute to Lawrence through an IRA rollover.
What are you planning on doing with your required minimum distribution—or possibly more? Could Lawrence be the recipient?
Join us in making a difference for future Lawrence students by calling your financial planner today and finding out if utilizing an IRA rollover is right for you.

Dr. Irving Auld and Dorothy
Roher Auld Scholarship
"Many students take for granted what a university has to offer. However, I am thankful every single day for the opportunity to attend this prestigious school. At Lawrence, you have the ability to engage in Socratic debates about the world we live in at dinner, play recreational or NCAA sports, and talk one on one with brilliant professors. At Lawrence, you don't just 'learn' a subject, you are immersed in it. You dive into the liberal arts and these professors show you the beauty in it all, and how everything is tied together. I am a Biochemistry major with a soft spot for rocket science, philosophy, and evolution. Lawrence is my dream school, and it would have never been possible without the Dr. Irving Auld and Dorothy Roher Auld Scholarship. I am forever grateful for their generosity."
