Blue & Gold Society Founder's Circle


When you make Ithaca College a beneficiary of a bequest or other planned gift, the Blue & Gold Society is proud to recognize you as a member of its Founder's Circle, a select group of donors who have included a gift to IC in estate plans. The Blue & Gold Society Founder's Circle honors IC's founder and first president, W. Grant Egbert.

Join us!

The following types of commitments are recognized by the Blue & Gold Society’s Founder's Circle:

  • a bequest provision in your will or revocable trust;
  • a life-income gift that names Ithaca as a remainder beneficiary, such as a charitable remainder trust or a charitable gift annuity;
  • a charitable lead trust that provides income to Ithaca for your lifetime or a term of years;
  • a gift or assignment of retirement plan assets, such as an IRA, 401(k), or 403(b);
  • a gift of life insurance;
  • certain other planned gifts.

Your willingness to be a part of the Founder's Circle allows the college to celebrate you and your commitment, and it helps encourage others to follow your example. We acknowledge and respect those who wish to remain anonymous, but please consider letting us know of your plans on a confidential basis so that we can ensure we have the documentation on file to honor your wishes.  Please contact Jennifer Gabriel, Director of Planned Giving, at or 607.274.1397 to discuss your planned gift, or to receive information about making one.
