Planned Giving – Leaving a Legacy

A Message from Bob Laskoff ’70

laskoff-bobAs an Alum of Maine Law, albeit a little older than most of you, I urge you to consider the unique opportunity of including the University of Maine School of Law in your estate plan. Many times during the year Jackie, my wife of 47 years, and I discuss where we are in life and what made that possible. The answer won’t surprise you.

Please join us by giving something back and leaving a legacy for future generations. Although there are many ways to express your appreciation for what Maine Law has and continues to do for its alums and the State of Maine, the opportunity to provide for Maine Law into its future and beyond my own lifetime is special.

Jackie and I have both made provisions for Maine Law in our estate plans, and I hope you will do the same!

There are many different ways to make a planned gift. Some of them include:

  • Outright Bequests
  • Gifts of Appreciated Stock
  • Charitable Gift Annuities
  • Charitable Remainder Trusts
  • Charitable Lead Trusts
  • Other Planned Giving Vehicles, including gifts of life insurance, retirement plan assets, and commercial or residential real estate

For more information, please contact the Maine Law Advancement Office at 207.780.4342.

Thank you for considering a legacy gift that will forge a way for future generations.
