Gift Planning


A planned gift is more than a donation. It is an expression of your desire to make a difference—at Colby and in the world—and to leave a lasting legacy. Colby is grateful to alumni, parents, faculty, and friends who prearrange their special gifts to support the long-term success of the College.

Today. Tomorrow. Always.

Make a Bequest
The greatest requirement for a bequest is foresight. You do not have to be wealthy to remember Colby in your will. If you have already made a provision for the College through a bequest, please see our online documentation forms.

Create a CGA

With a life-income gift you give—and receive in return. Gifts including the charitable gift annuity not only provide for the College, they also offer financial, estate planning, and tax benefits to you and your heirs.

Start here.

Join the Willows Society
Recognizing people who have made special gifts through their estate commitments or other deferred gifts to the endowment, the Willows Society bridges Colby’s past and future. Willows Society members are honored at special events throughout each year.
