Giving to Manchester

ERNIE '50 AND CLEONA NEHER '49 BARR like knowing that their charitable gift annuities are investments in the bright futures of Manchester College students.

"We find it be a wise investment," explains Ernie, a retired executive of Eli Lilly and Company. "As we give to our beloved College, we receive additional income as the years fly by."

A charitable gift annuity is a simple agreement between you and Manchester College. In exchange for your charitable gift, the College agrees to pay you or your loved one a fixed annuity for life. Upon your death, Manchester College will use the remainder for the purpose you have designated.

Charitable gift annuities provide multiple tax benefits and unique strategies for long-term financial planning. More importantly, your generosity, like that of the Barrs, helps Manchester College students make a difference in the world.
