Her Gift Endures, As Will Yours

Planned giving helps to sustain the College's standards of excellence and ensure the future success and vitality of the College. A planned gift to Teachers College helps to build an enduring legacy for generations of TC students in education, psychology, health and related fields.

If you have ever traveled the halls of 525 W. 120th Street, you have been touched by Grace Dodge. One of the founders of Teachers College, this remarkable woman was one of the first to leave a bequest to the school. This bequest gift, made in 1914, continues to sustain students and programs to this day.
Like Grace Dodge, alumni, faculty and friends of TC are united by a compelling need to make an impact on education and the world. A bequest is the easiest and most tangible way to further the work of Teachers College far into the future.
In these times of economic turmoil, a planned gift is an important option and a critical component of the long–term financial security of Teachers College. If you believe in the work that goes on here every day, we invite you to strengthen your commitment by making a lasting investment in TC. Established in 2000 by the Board of Trustees, the Grace Dodge Society honors those alumni, friends and faculty who have made TC a part of their estate plans. Membership in the Grace Dodge Society is our way of thanking you—during your lifetime—for your extraordinary generosity.
