Your Legacy Matters...

Planned Giving

Many people think that because they don't own enough property, they don't need a will. But when you add up all of the assets that you own, your estate may be larger than you think.


• A will can help you decide who will receive your property.
• You can appoint a guardian for your minor children in your will.
• A will allows you to appoint an executor to administer your estate.
• A will can help reduce taxes for your heirs and your estate.

The Coe College Heritage Club was inspired by eleventh President Joseph E. McCabe and exists to recognize and honor those who have acted to provide future support to the college, through bequests, trusts, annuities, and other deferred gifts. On June 11, 1993, President McCabe delivered his A Night to Remember address to the charter members of the Heritage Club. He exclaimed, "The future is ours if we have the vision to seize it."

Heritage Club members provide the college with financial stability, and enrich the educational opportunities for current and future students. Each year members of the Heritage Club gather together with President Phifer for an elegant appreciation dinner. Coe College Heritage Club membership is permanently recorded on the plaques located in Clark Alumni House.
