Gifts of Estate
Many alumni and friends have made bequest provisions, which are exempt from federal estate and state inheritance taxes and do not have a limit on the deduction amount. In Fiscal Year 2013–2014, Columbia College was the beneficiary of bequests from the estates of the following alumni, widows, widowers, relatives and friends.
The 1754 Society acknowledges alumni, parents and friends who have made plans for the University through life income gifts or as part of their estate. Named for the year in which King’s College was established, the society recognizes the vital role that benefactors have played in Columbia’s emergence as a preeminent educational institution and the role they play today in ensuring its prominence. New members in Fiscal Year 2013–2014 are indicated by an asterisk.
