Make a Lasting Impact Through a Planned Gift

November 15, 2019

“I chose to join the Miriam Society because I believe in Chatfield’s mission. Chatfield is a truly special place. One that prepares students for a better future, and embodies the spirit of hardworking women and men, who wish to make a difference in the lives of others. I decided to make a planned gift  because I see how empowering Chatfield is for its students, allowing them to achieve their dreams and accomplish their goals through education.”

-Natasha Richiron, Chatfield staff


About the Miriam Society. The Miriam Society was formed in honor of Chatfield’s founder and first Dean, Sr. Miriam Thompson, to recognize individuals who have chosen to leave a planned gift for Chatfield College. The Miriam Society’s members are women and men committed to the mission of Chatfield College to transform lives and families through education.  That transformation can only be achieved through private financial support and the building of the endowment fund.

A planned gift, left to Chatfield through your will, retirement plan, life insurance policy or other means, can provide the difference.

It’s easy. Ensuring that you make a difference can be as simple as adding a sentence to your existing will or adding Chatfield College on a beneficiary form.

Every gift will make a profound impact. Whether your gift is $1 or $1,000,000, we can empower more students through education to better themselves, their employability and their future.


You can help you and your family now and others later.  You can increase lifetime cash flow for you, your spouse or other loved ones through a charitable remainder trust.  After your death (or your spouse’s death), whatever remains in the trust goes to Chatfield.


You have the flexibility to decide what is best. Your gift can come to us only after your other needs are met.  It can also be a percentage so it remains in proportion to other desires you wish to fulfill.  You can change your gift at any time if your circumstances change.


You can choose how you want to make your impact. Your gift can be unrestricted, placed in our endowment, or you can designate that it pay for specific needs at Chatfield… whatever means most to you.
