The Lycoming College Development Office recently launched a new website for charitable gift planning. The interactive, online service allows constituents to independently explore various estate and legacy planning scenarios through user-friendly tools and calculators.

Examples include a "Will Planning Wizard," a "Gifts That Pay You Income" link that calculates rates and payouts for life-income gifts and a "Compare Gift Plans" page that provides users with a side-by-side comparison of all the various options.

"Our donor's support is of great value to us," says Karen Sheaffer, planned giving officer and Lycoming alumna. "We are pleased to expand our website to make it a resource for them to plan their charitable gifts to the College. A carefully planned gift can provide benefits to the donor, their loved ones and the College, and our new website tools help show them how to do that."

The website is available at, and is just one new feature of the College's redesigned website that launched in the fall.
