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

“Typically, a lot of engineers become entrepreneurs. They just start their own businesses,” said Ben DiMiero, a 2009 graduate and one of the “guinea pigs” in a program to show budding engineers how to take ideas beyond the research and development stage.
