Plan Your Gift to Williams

Williams College offers a full range of charitable gift planning services to alumni, parents and friends. The Office of Gift Planning can help you explore a host of gift options that will allow you and your family to make a difference to present and future Eph generations.

This site offers ideas and information to help you consider and complete a planned gift to Williams. Explore Giving Options here, or visit the navigation bar on the right. You can utilize our gift calculator, learn about The Ephraim Williams Society, find sample bequest language, check a current issue of Giftwise, our newsletter about planned giving, or simply read fellow Ephs' personal giving stories.

Annually we hold our Ephraim Williams Society Breakfast on the Friday morning of Reunion weekend to celebrate all of our EWS members and welcome any reunion attendees who want to learn more. In lieu of our annual celebration, please watch a message of thanks from Trustee Emeritus and EWS Chair Paul Neely '68 and President Maud S. Mandel.
