Dr. Webb at SENGDiego, SENG's 2018 annual conference
In 2018, SENG and the GT/2E community lost its founder, pioneer and friend, Dr. James Webb.
There are several ways you can honor Jim's memory, including donations to the scholarship in his name, endowment and planned gifts, and long term split income gifts, like annuities.
Those who leave SENG in their estate plans or give a gift through another provision below will be inducted into the James T. Webb Society.
The James T. Webb Society is a group of individuals who so believe in SENG's mission and vision that they leave SENG in their estate plans.
Specifically, people who make planned gifts, such as bequests, trusts, charitable gift annuities, and more, are eligible for induction to the Webb Society in perpetuity, as well as those who make endowment gifts over $5,000. Donors who give one-time gifts of $500+ to the James T. Webb Scholarship Fund may be members of the Webb Society for that year.
Because of the extraordinary commitments made to SENG by this legacy circle, they will be invited to special meetings with the President of the Board and Executive Director, receive stakeholder updates, and enjoy benefits, like complimentary membership, SENG merchandise, the Webb Society dinner, and more.
Most importantly, Webb Society members will be able to create their own legacy for the GT/2E community, just as Jim Webb did, and honor his memory in perpetuity.
Ideas for your legacy giving.
SENG's endowment fund is a nest egg for rainy days and growth strategies. Donations earmarked for the endowment fund help it grow, so we can be prepared for both planned and unexpected events.
The easiest way to join the James T. Webb Society is to create a provision in your will that makes SENG a beneficiary of your estate. You may use this sample codicil language to edit your existing will, or this sample language for a will or trust. Please consult with your attorney for professional advice.
