Leave a Legacy

The College needs financial assistance from people like you to continue its leadership role in higher education for adult students. By making a charitable bequest, you will assure that your generosity continues to assist students and to advance the mission of the College. Your gift will provide the resources to preserve Charter Oak's future. There is no better way to thank the institution that made an important impact on your life or on the lives of others.

There are two important steps as you consider a bequest. Contact the Foundation through the Office of the College President at (860) 515-3889 and contact your estate planning attorney or other professional advisor.

Gifts small and large are important so we hope that in your own way, you will leave a legacy.

There's no end to the good you can do.
Connecticut's LEAVE A LEGACY® urges people to leave their mark on the community.

"Everyone can help, regardless of income, and each gift makes an impact," says Lyn Walker, co-chair of LEAVE A LEGACY® Connecticut and a partner at Day, Berry & Howard.
