Kiracofe Society
The Kiracofe Society was established to recognize those who honor Mary Baldwin College through a provision in their estate plans. Begun in 1987 and named for Charlene Kiracofe ’25, membership is open to all whose gift is through a bequest, charitable gift annuity, life insurance, charitable remainder trust, testamentary charitable lead trust, or life estate in real property.

Your gift may be unrestricted (to be used as needed by the College) or restricted to a particular purpose. It may also be designated for permanent endowment.

It is important to Mary Baldwin that your gift be stewarded as you intend. To do this, we need to know how you wish your gift to be used. Please let us know your intentions. We also would like the opportunity to thank you!
