Growing With Giving
Like any good Iowa farm boy, Gene Chappell grew up with values such as lending a helping hand and working to better the community.
It's no surprise his attitude of giving extends to their relationship with Iowa State University. Gene and his wife, Beth, started giving to Iowa State in the 1970s and continued through the years with consistent and modest gifts. When it came time to evaluate their financial plan for the future, they knew exactly where to turn.
The Chappells wanted to find a way to give back that mattered personally to him while also helping others. When looking into gift vehicles, it became apparent that in order to leave a legacy and stay financially savvy, their best option was the charitable gift annuity.
"There are great things about this gift structure, but the best part is obviously the income!" Gene said.
