By including Columbia College in your will or making other planned gifts, you can plan wisely for your future and make a meaningful contribution. Planned gifts enable you to preserve your assets during your lifetime and leave a valuable legacy. Donors who make estate and other planned gifts are recognized as R. Wright Spears Society members. Gifts that qualify for Society recognition include gifts in wills, trusts, retirement plans, and more.

If you have already named Columbia College in your plans, please inform the Office of Advancement so that your wishes for your gift may be documented. We want to ensure your legacy is handled just as you desire.
