Summer/Fall  2000
Volume 5 Number 1

Summer offers us a welcome opportunity for vacation and for a change of pace. The more relaxed season is also a time when many find it convenient to work around their homes to sort through attics and basements and to review their wills and other financial affairs.

The Reverend Chase S. Hunt is the Seminary’s director of planned giving.

Reviewing your will (or drawing one up if you have not already done so!) is important. It is a unique opportunity to name an executor, to select the guardian(s) for children who are minors, to give attention to estate tax considerations, and to be sure that the fruits of a lifetime of effort are distributed according to your wishes and in an manner consistent with your interests. Your will can be an expression of your stewardship and a lasting extension of your Christian witness. We have been blessed through the years by the thoughtfulness of many alumni/ae and friends who have provided for the Seminary in their wills. One expression of our gratitude is to invite those who do so to become members of our Legacy Society.

PTS Recognized for Excellence in Fund-raising!



Princeton Seminary won one of CASE’s 2000 Circle of Excellence in Educational Fund-raising Awards, which honors superior fund-raising programs of colleges, universities, and independent schools across the country. CASE (Council for Advancement and Support of Education) is an international association of education advancement officers, who include alumni/ae administrators, fund-raisers, public relations managers, publications editors, and government relations officers.

The Seminary, along with other schools, was publicly recognized in July at the CASE International Assembly in Toronto, Canada.

Another option to consider during this review: Are there life insurance policies among your financial papers that have served their original purpose that you no longer need? If so, they offer you an opportunity for charitable giving with relatively modest, if any, financial outlay. When the Seminary is named both owner and beneficiary of an existing policy on which no more payments are due, there are a number of benefits to the donor: the joy of joining with others in support of the Seminary’s mission; a charitable deduction for income tax purposes in the year of the gift (ordinarily the cost of replacing the policy at the donor’s present age and physical condition) with carryover privileges for up to five additional years; and the removal of the policy’s full face value from the donor’s estate.

If the policy given is not fully paid-up, the donor is entitled to benefits similar to those mentioned above, except that the charitable deduction would amount to (approximately) the policy’s cash surrender value at the time of the gift, with the same carryover provision. In addition, if the donor continues to pay premiums on the policy, he or she is entitled to a charitable deduction each year in the amount of those premium payments. In either event, those giving life insurance would also be invited into membership in the Seminary’s Legacy Society.

For more information about giving through wills and/or life insurance, please visit our web site at www.ptsem.edu or call me at 800-622-6767, ext. 7756 or 609-497-7756. As always, we also encourage you to consult with your own legal/financial advisors.
