Planned Giving: Leaving a Legacy

Dora Kim Baer '83, the most recent Mary Institute alumna to make a planned gift to MICDS.

Meet Dora Kim Baer ’83, the most recent Mary Institute alumna to make a planned gift to MICDS. Dora transferred from Los Angeles, Calif., to Mary I her junior year and recently decided to include MICDS in her estate plans to establish the Dora Kim Baer Fund for Financial Aid. She credits her Mary I teachers and the School’s broad-based curriculum that eventually led to her admission to Columbia University, and now her work trading U.S. government bond debt. Dora made a planned gift to MICDS by contacting the Alumni & Development Office and filling out a simple one-page form. She says she knows her gift will be in good hands at MICDS.

My late husband and I never had children so I won’t have much of a legacy in my life. By including MICDS in my estate plans for the purpose of Financial Aid, I am able to contribute to somebody else’s education and make my existence felt. Plus, making MICDS financially available helps with the socioeconomic diversity of the student population and that helps everyone.
