Anna Maria Receives Additional Funding
Anna Maria College has received a $100,000 grant from the George I. Alden Trust to address the unusual and unavoidable expenses that the school has experienced due to COVID-19.
“We are eternally grateful for the generous grant that we have received from the George I. Alden Trust,” said President Mary Lou Retelle. “This grant will help with some of the unexpected expenses the College has taken on due to the pandemic as well as the school’s operations.”
This grant is meant to address the unique circumstances that have confronted the local educational institutions since the onset of the pandemic, and now continuing into the 2020-2021 school year.
George Alden established the George I. Alden Trust in 1912 to maintain some charitable or philanthropic enterprises specifically in the promotion of education in schools, colleges or other educational institutions.
Anna Maria College was also the beneficiary of a bequest made by Carole Nowak '66.
A charitable bequest is a provision in your will that perpetuates your support for the College while retaining the right to change your mind should circumstances change. Typical gifts are cash, appreciated securities, real estate, and personal property. Primary benefits to you include your estate receiving a charitable-gift tax deduction at the time of the donation and the assets remain in your name during your lifetime.
We thank Carole and the Nowak family for including Anna Maria College in their planned giving programs.
