Dr. Anne Sherren Charitable Gift Annuity
In scientific circles, chemistry professor emerita Dr. Anne Sherren is known for her scholarship. But her real passion is for students.
So when Sherren retired, the College's trustees established a scholarship in her honor. Former students and colleagues also helped fund the scholarship. Sherren and her husband Bill made numerous gifts to it over the years, and established a charitable gift annuity to further support it.
"Bill and I have a saying: We have faith in tomorrow because of the youth of today," says Sherren, who was also one of the earliest donors to the Wentz Science Center. "We need to train the leaders who will come after us. We need to look out for the next generation."
How you can help our students? By forming a charitable gift annuity you ensure that when you no longer need retirement income, the balance goes to your favorite fund at North Central. Benefits of a charitable gift annuity include a fixed income stream for either a life or a term of years, an immediate charitable income tax deduction that can be carried forward, and when you establish the annuity you can direct the proceeds to a fund of your choice.
