Perspectives on Planning

Dear Alumni and Friends,

Perspectives on Planning Issues

The stock market makes me dizzy these days: record highs followed by deep dives, all in the same week! Yet, as the economy recovers, there are great opportunities to minimize your taxes, get the most out of your investments, plan effectively for retirement, and identify the best ways to support your family as well as charitable organizations that are important to you. This issue of Perspectives on Planning outlines several savvy strategies to benefit from the market’s rollercoaster now. We also present the idea of endowing your Lasell Fund support, so your annual gift can strengthen Lasell forever.

Most important, we feature Heritage Society member and 50th reunion class member Virginia “Ginger” Pedrick Searle ’65, who provides a glimpse into the College’s impact on her. “Lasell formed me,” she says. I would say the same thing myself, which is why I am a Heritage Society member, too. Feel free to call me anytime with your questions or explore our website: www.lasell.edu/HeritageSociety.
