You choose the organizations. We continue to support them.

A good choice for donors who want to help specific groups, but understand that not all nonprofits live forever, or continue doing the same work.

George Delacorte founded Dell Publishing and the Delacorte Center for Magazine Journalism at Columbia University. He wanted to support the Center in perpetuity, but with certain conditions. Through his will, he created a designated fund in The Trust that requested a George Delacorte Professor in Magazine Journalism, who also directs the program. Today, the program thrives.
