Connie ’66 and Dick ’65 Layman

 Connie '66 and Dick '65 LaymanDick and I have always given to Bucknell's Annual Fund, but recently we were inspired to give at a more substantial level. Part of this desire to increase our support was the experience of having a son attend Bucknell and marry a classmate, which certainly has made Bucknell an even more special place for our family.

When we learned that many Bucknell students depend on significant financial aid, we realized our support could make a big difference in their lives. We want to help give more young people the opportunity to attend this amazing place and then contribute -- not just to Bucknell but also to the community and even the world.

A Charitable Gift Annuity was the perfect solution. It provides us with fixed income for life, and the remaining balance will support unrestricted scholarships. We donate with pride, and joy and the sense that we are making an important investment in the future.
