Princeton Bonds Anchor Doug Levick '58's Life

November 14th, 2018 / Gift Planning

The memories Douglas G. G. Levick III ’58 holds of Princeton are an accumulation of moments: riding his bicycle across campus on his way to and from school as a seventh and eighth grader, pausing sometimes to watch sports practices; spending afternoons in engineering labs and evenings in Firestone Library, where he commandeered a study carrel (supposedly for seniors only, but he learned how to jimmy the door of one, to open it with a spoon); reveling in hard fought victories in hockey and lacrosse (where he earned first team All-American honors two years).

November 16th, 2017 / Gift Planning

In addition to providing generous support, life income gifts can diversify your portfolio, increase your income, reduce or defer capital gains tax, and provide a federal income tax deduction. Donors often use the payments to fund their annual gift to the University, or to support a University priority during their lifetime. Beginning with their 50th Reunion, alumni can make their gift in this form through the Annual Giving Legacy program and receive class credit.

Princeton’s Professors Go Above and Beyond

November 16th, 2017 / Gift Planning

Chances are, when you went to Princeton, your interaction with professors went well beyond the classroom and office hours.
