Our Donors & Their Gifts
Mrs. Anne Leonard W '39
Each time I visit Yale, I feel as if I am truly coming home. As a member of Yale Legacy Partners, I gather on campus each spring with fellow alumni, family, and friends who have made a bequest or other planned gift to the University. More than ten years ago, my now late husband, Jim, and I made a gift of stock to the University in exchange for fixed lifetime payments through a simple life income plan called a charitable gift annuity. Since then, I have established three additional gift annuities with Yale.
"In addition to the personal financial security that my annuities provide, I am most gratified by the impact these gifts will have on the future of Yale. I can't help but be reminded of how much Yale meant to Jim. He would take great satisfaction in knowing that our contributions will ultimately support the education of tomorrow's leaders."
