Join the Baruch Benchmark Society
Help Maintain Baruch’s Legacy of Excellence

In the 1960s, Bernard Baruch made an estate gift that launched a philanthropic tradition at Baruch College. He believed in the critical mission of public higher education to unify diverse peoples and provide new generations with opportunities for advancement. He also recognized that the true measure of a school is determined by the caliber of its faculty and student body.

This tradition continues today, thanks to the loyal alumni and valued friends of the Baruch Benchmark Society. By including Baruch College in their estate plans, the members of this society create a legacy that will ensure the College’s place as a leader and innovator in public higher education for generations to come.

A Charitable Gift Annuity is just one of many ways you can provide a significant legacy gift to Baruch. Beyond support for Baruch, a charitable gift annuity is a highly beneficial tool to help you plan your estate. Benefits include:

  • a fixed income for life
  • income tax deductions
  • reduced or eliminated capital gains and estate taxes
  • greater income during your retirement years

The Office of College Advancement is happy to work with you and your advisors in arranging a gift plan that best suits your objectives. We look forward to welcoming you as a member of the Baruch Benchmark Society.
