Giving to Yale

John F. Woyke ’63, ’67 J.D. on charitable gift annuities

Yale Law School

“Using a charitable gift annuity has enabled me to make a larger contribution to Yale than I could have otherwise. Because I do not need additional current income, I selected annuities with a deferred starting date.Doing so allowed me to contribute a substantial amount, while obtaining a fixed dollar payment to improve my future financial security. It also allowed me to make a significant contribution both to Yale College and Yale Law School, and also to the Divinity School, which my father attended. As a young boy he would take me with him while he went to classes. Not only do I remember the excitement and beauty of the campus, but also the thrill of having access to thousands of books to read, which inculcated a life-long pleasure in learning.”
