Continuing My Lawrence Support— Trust Beneficiary
A number of years ago I sat down with a development officer and had a conversation about my giving to Lawrence. While I always enjoy engaging with Lawrence, I was a bit uncertain about what and how much this person may want from me. Through that conversation, I learned about a variety of ways in which I could expand my financial support on my own terms and timeline without affecting my current financial situation, since I had two sons to put through college! I learned about planned giving, which wasn't something I had known much about nor considered previously. There were so many great ideas for thinking about a legacy for Lawrence-and many of these concepts are very easy to do. Eventually, my husband and I decided to create a trust and we named Lawrence a charitable beneficiary. It feels good knowing my support to Lawrence will be able to continue through my future gift. And once I shared this information with Lawrence, I became a member of the Legacy Circle.

"The thing I admire most about Lawrence is the diverse community. You are accepted and treated fairly no matter where you are from. Lawrence does not only teach you what you need to know it also helps you to be independent and prepare you to be successful for the future. I have always wanted to be in this prestigious and diverse university. I will forever be grateful to the Clare Scherf Sweetman Scholarship for helping me reach my dream."
