Benefits of Lifetime Gifts

Jack and Norma Erdle

“Our daughter, Brenda Moss ’68, graduated from RIT, and we see RIT as a sound investment,” say Jack Erdle, founder and chairman of Eldre Corp., and his wife, Norma.

Jack and Norma Erdle gave RIT $1 million in recognition of RIT graduates. Their gift – made in the form of a charitable gift annuity – will do more than they imagined.

“By establishing a charitable gift annuity to benefit RIT, we were able to meet our financial and philanthropic objectives in one step. The charitable gift annuity allowed us to make a gift arrangement that will pay us income for life and will support RIT in the years to come.”
