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.

HOW CAN A WILL HELP YOU?

• 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.

Joan Kocher and Robert L. Kocher - Marvin D. Cone Professor of Art, Emeritus

Professor Emeritus Bob Kocher was a professor of art at Coe for many years. "Other than my wife and family, Coe was my first love and commitment," he says. "I recently retired as the curator of Coe's art collection."

"We love Coe for all the opportunities the college made possible, and all of the people we met because of it," say the Kochers. "When Bob became Chair of the department," shares Joan, "I became even more involved with Coe than I was before. I hosted many receptions after art shows; I entertained visiting artists—it was a busy but wonderful time. We had the chance to meet so many interesting people."

"We were very lucky to have the opportunities my sabbaticals gave us," says Bob. "We spent time all over the country—Cape Cod, an island off the Atlantic coast—but the time we spent in New Mexico was life–altering. It changed the direction of my art." Joan says, "We found that we really enjoyed life there. We became very close to a group of Coe alumni in the Santa Fe area. We have been back to New Mexico several times and plan to return again."

"We joined the Heritage Club because we want to preserve all of this," says Bob. "It's a great school—and it's important work, educating the young." The Heritage Club is different from regular gift–giving because it is planned giving, such as money left in a will or an insurance policy. But–– "My definition of the Heritage Club is this: A group of very nice people who are committed to Coe College because they love it," says Bob. "We enjoy spending time with them." Joan adds, "We wish we could give more than we can."
