Gifts Anyone Can Make
Do you know there are ways to support the Harvard Varsity Club that don't affect your current lifestyle or your family's security?
You can support the Harvard Varsity Club with gifts that don't impact the way you live by designating the Harvard Varsity Club to receive estate assets in the future or by making immediate gifts to us of assets that are "out of sight and out of mind."
We call these "Gifts Anyone Can Make" because anyone can make them now without impacting cash flow, lifestyle, or family security.
- You can make a gift that costs you nothing during your lifetime.
- You can make a gift that leaves your cash flow and current financial planning unchanged.
- You don't have to use cash to make your gift; you can "buy low and give high" by making your gift with appreciated securities instead.
- You can give an asset you no longer need or want.
