Why Give?

How Your Gift Helps

Giving matters because the quality of an Amherst education and the College’s commitment to educational opportunity depend on it.

Benefits of Giving

A gift plan can provide you substantial tax advantages, especially on gifts of stocks and real estate. The total income, estate, and capital gains tax savings and the probate expense savings can come close to the amount transferred. A planned gift today can save you headaches tomorrow.
