What’s the benefit of sharing this information?

After communicating your wishes with the college, you can:

  • Join a community – You become the newest member of the Manitou Heights Society, our planned giving donor circle.
  • Protect your privacy – Your intent can be entirely confidential.
  • Receive recognition – The college can appropriately thank you for your generosity.
  • State a preference – Direct your gift to a fund or program of your choice–the college’s general needs, financial aid, athletics, and more.
  • Help us plan our future – The college’s ability to plan for future needs and new resources is enhanced.
  • Give to the campaign – Donors age 70 and older can count their intent as a gift to For the Hill and Beyond, the college’s campaign.
  • Inspire others to follow your lead – With your permission, the story of your gift can encourage the generosity of others.
