When we heard about the Handelman Fund, established to honor Dr. Stanley Handelman with whom Neil studied in a residency at Eastman Dental Center in the late 1970s, we knew that we wanted to participate.
Establishing a series of deferred charitable gift annuities was the right plan for us at this time in our lives. We fund the annuities while in peak earning years, receive a charitable deduction the year in which we make the gift, and are guaranteed a generous rate of annual payment when the deferral period ends. The rate will never change through the rest of our lives, and the income will be a nice complement to other income sources in our retirement years.
It is our pleasure to honor Dr. Handelman and the other faculty members at Eastman Dental Center who helped me during my General Practice Residency. This was an outstanding year, and I truly appreciate the consideration and education I received. I hope my gift will help the program continue in its outstanding tradition.
Dr. Neil Hollyfield '78D and Nancy Hollyfield
