Planned Giving Testimonial Adams

I decided to create life-income gifts at Wellesley because I want to support Wellesley, and I like the financial benefits. As someone who wants to live a long time, I like knowing there always will be income from the gift. When we named me as the income beneficiary (as opposed to both of us), Ted and I maximized both the annual income and the amount of the charitable gift income tax deduction. For a long time, I have been a supporter of the work of the Wellesley Centers for Women. Ted and I are pleased to know that these gift annuities will help support the centers with additional financial resources in the future.
