A Will To Give
Annemarie and George Smeltzer with Marcia Cook , BSN, MPH, '85 at the 2009 Legacy Luncheon.George Smeltzer decided that he wanted to do something special for nurses in gratitude for the excellent care he received during his hospitalizations. The George and Annemarie Smeltzer Scholarship Fund is the result. This scholarship, funded through his will, provides for the education of future nurses at Carlow University.
"Having included an endowed scholarship for future nurses in our estate plans gives Annemarie and me a deep sense of satisfaction and it engages us in a wonderful relationship with Carlow University. We support Carlow's progress through our current involvement as members of the Callaghan Society and we know that we will be part of its achievements through our future scholarship."
Including Carlow University in your will provides a gift to Carlow University that will not affect your current lifestyle or your family's security. Your bequest will cost you nothing during your lifetime and it leaves your cash flow and current financial plan unchanged.
Benefactors who include Carlow University in their estate plans become members of the Callaghan Society. Their legacy is a lasting memorial to their values and interests and allows Carlow to recognize their generosity during their lifetime.
Our staff is experienced in assisting benefactors with questions about gift planning and about the many opportunities that exist to make a satisfying and personally rewarding bequest.
