Giving to Manchester


AS LINDA MURBACH ’62 plans for her own financial future during her
retirement, she is helping her alma mater promote literacy initiatives
throughout its entire curriculum. The Massachusetts resident has
designated Manchester as beneficiary of her retirement plan. And, with current giving, she’s created the Avis A. Murbach Literacy Fund in honor of her mother.

The retired educator says her gifts now and in the future help her
thank her alma mater for “the positive professional and personal
influence that Manchester College has had on my life.” The fund will
help Education faculty improve and expand literacy education as they train tomorrow’s teachers.

Supporting Manchester by making it a beneficiary of your retirement plan can provide significant estate and deferred income tax benefits while achieving a lasting legacy to benefit Manchester students for generations to come.
