Blue & Gold Society Founder's Circle


When you make Ithaca College a beneficiary of a bequest or other planned gift, the Ithaca College 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.

How to Join

The following types of commitments, confirmed in writing and subject to certain restrictions, qualify you for membership in the 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 a donor's lifetime or a term of years;
  • a gift or assignment of qualified retirement plan assets, such as an IRA, 401(k), or 403(b);
  • a gift of life insurance;
  • certain other planned gifts.

If you have already included Ithaca in a bequest or other planned gift, we hope you will let us know. Your willingness to be listed as a member of the Founder's Circle encourages others to follow your example. We acknowledge and respect those who wish to remain anonymous, but we urge you to let us know of your plans on a confidential basis in any case. Doing so supports Ithaca's planning for the future.

Of course, if you have not yet included Ithaca College in your plans and you would like to explore the best options for you and your family, do not hesitate to contact us. We would be glad to assist you on a confidential basis and without any obligation.

The Founder's Circle Experience

The president of Ithaca College will send each new donor a letter of thanks and appreciation, which you may file with your other estate planning documents. In addition, we hope you will allow us to recognize you as a part of the Blue & Gold Society in our annual online donor report. Your inclusion in our Report on Giving encourages others to join in this important effort.

As a part of the Founder's Circle community, you will also receive timely information, tips, and ongoing professional gift planning services from the Office of Major and Planned Giving, as well as invitations to events in Ithaca, New York City, and around the country, and other communications from the Blue & Gold Society.
