Planned Giving Opportunities: There are many different reasons to consider making a planned gift to the College. It is a wonderful way to leave your legacy on this great institution and ensure that the opportunities offered at MCLA continue into the future.

There are many types of planned giving opportunities. It can be as simple as naming the College in your will or creating a Charitable Remainder Trust.

Creating a Named Scholarship: Numerous students who would otherwise be unable to afford college have achieved their dreams, thanks to the support of our donors. In addition to financial aid, the College currently awards nearly 100 scholarships to talented and deserving students, made possible by generous donations of alumni and friends - and the list continues to grow. Please consider establishing your own scholarship, or one in memory or in honor of someone.

Sponsoring a Bench: MCLA's bench program seeks donors interested in making a lasting impression on campus. Benches are placed on campus and cared for in perpetuity. These are a wonderful way to honor a loved one or make a gift in their memory.

For more information about any of the giving opportunities above please contact Christine Naughton '99, Director of Alumni Relations and Development, at 413.662.5074 or C.Naughton@mcla.edu.
