Norwich Forever! Campaign
Have your cake and eat it too:
Secure a guaranteed fixed income rate with a charitable gift annuity from Norwich
By establishing a charitable gift annuity you make an irrevocable gift to Norwich in exchange for a current tax deduction for a portion of the gift and a guaranteed fixed income stream for life. In the current investment environment the gift annuity rates are very competitive and lock in a guaranteed return for life. For details and current rates, visit the Online Community at
The Emergency Economic Stabilization Act of 2008 renewed the provision to allow individuals to make charitable contributions tax-free using retirement assets. This legislation replaced the Pension Protection Act of 2006 and will allow tax-free contributions of up to $100,000 per year for individuals aged 70 ½ and older.
For more information please contact Priscilla Gilbert, Director of Planned Giving at (802) 485-2301 or or visit
. Take advantage of your employer's matching gift program
So you've just dropped a gift to Norwich into the mail and now you're considering which item to tackle next on your to-do list - mowing the yard or washing your car. Before moving on to that chore, take a moment to learn if your employer operates a matching gift program. If it does, you may be able to double your gift to the University. Continued at

Navy lieutenant Chris Matters '99 was aboard the USS Boxer when word came that the Maersk Alabama, a merchant ship, had been attacked by pirates off the coast of Somalia, and its captain, Vermonter Richard Phillips, had been taken hostage. Matters helped craft the plan to rescue Phillips, and experienced firsthand the Navy's response. In an email sent to a classmate, Chris wrote, "Leave it to Norwich to be on the tip of the spear in bringing a Vermonter home."

Twenty-three year Army veteran and assistant professor of history Dr. Charles Sanders says the best part of the Masters in Military History Staff Ride is getting to watch his students literally see history come alive.
"To stand at the Bloody Angle, which is only a 100-feet by 300-feet plot, and understand that 20,000 Americans fought and died there that day, under conditions we can't even begin to imagine - it's not a cliché. You really do understand that you're standing on hallowed ground."
This year's Staff Ride took eight graduate students and four undergraduates on an in-depth tour of Civil War battlefields.
