There's More Than One Way to Give Life Insurance Beneficiary to Bequest
John Rowland '79
I have served on many nonprofits as well as a community foundation. I have also been involved in fundraising since early in my career. Being involved in the insurance industry I have some basic understanding of estate planning. At the time I created my will I had younger children, so as a way to provide some immediate funding upon death I decided to also include important organizations as a percentage beneficiary of a life insurance policy. Also upon death a simple trust is created to benefit my children until a particular age at which point my beneficiaries and organizations are funded through the will's provisions. One of those organizations is Lawrence.
Although I have never been able to be a major donor to any organization, I understand the importance of consistent participation and try to do my part. I recognize that my best chance of making a significant contribution will be through a legacy program like Lawrence-Downer Legacy Circle. What will your legacy be?

"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."
