Giving from Your Retirement Plan

Gift of Retirement Plan Diagram

You've worked hard and planned for retirement. Now, with a little creativity, you can leverage your retirement assets to benefit you and your family, reduce federal taxes, and support HWS far into the future.

How It Works

  • Name or designate Hobart and William Smith Colleges as a beneficiary of your IRA, 401(k), or other qualified retirement plan.
  • Pass the balance of your retirement assets to HWS by contacting your plan administrator.
  • Important! Tell HWS about your gift. Your plan administrator is not obligated to notify us. So if you don't tell us, we may not know.
