Granite & Sagebrush: The Bequest Society of Pomona College

Creating a legacy plan allows you to decide how your values and financial resources will benefit the people and organizations about which you care the most. Conveying your financial assets to heirs and charitable organizations as part of your legacy plan can be done through a will, living trust or beneficiary designation on a retirement account or life insurance policy.

Pomona College works with alumni and friends who want to create a legacy plan that supports the College’s mission and advances its position as a beacon for the liberal arts. Your legacy gift may provide estate tax benefits and may be directed to a specific purpose at the College as agreed upon in advance. You can feel good knowing that future generations of Pomona students will benefit from your foresight and generosity.

Pomona College recognizes those who have included the College in their estate plans through membership in Granite & Sagebrush, the College’s honorary legacy society. Established in 2000, Granite & Sagebrush has over 300 members and takes its name from the book of the same title written in 1944 by Professor Frank Brackett, an astronomer and one of the founding faculty members of the College.
