“Throughout my career, I’ve counted on my ability to sit down, read something highly technical,
and quickly learn the information. At the University of Rochester I learned how to think and I learned how to learn. Everyone I know from Rochester has done exceptional things, and I am proud of that heritage.
Giving back allows me to support Rochester’s ongoing success and have an impact on future generations.
I learned that funding charitable gift annuities with appreciated securities would provide me a stable income as well as current tax advantages.
To other alumni and friends, I’d say, there are multiple benefits to paying it forward with a gift annuity.”
