Welcome to Gift Planning

Gift Planning at Houghton College allows you to create a personalized plan for your charitable giving that suits your unique set of financial goals and individual means. The staff in our Office of Gift Planning stands ready to support you and your professional advisor to achieve your philanthropic objectives. We invite you to explore our Gift Planning web site, where you will discover how planned gifts can actually:

  • Reduce your income tax, estate tax, and capital-gain taxes.
  • Increase your income.
  • Complement your retirement plans.
  • Create a long-lasting impact and legacy at Houghton College.

We count it a privilege to work alongside you as you explore your options. For more information or to speak with someone in our Office of Gift Planning, call 585-567-9545.
