The Heritage Society recognizes those individuals who have chosen to leave a legacy at Rensselaer by planning a testamentary gift or making a life income gift. Members receive special publications, invitations to events, and a thank you gift.
Testamentary gifts include gifts by will, retirement account beneficiary designation, or life insurance beneficiary designation. Life income gifts include charitable gift annuities, charitable remainder trusts, and gifts to Rensselaer’s pooled income funds.
Please let us know if you have planned a gift to Rensselaer through your estate so that we can enroll you into the Heritage Society. Contact Art Tracy, Director of Gift Planning, or call 518-276-2561 for more information.
