Insurance Gift Expands Future for Scholarship

Insurance Gift Expands Future for Scholarship
When Ward McAfee, one of the founding faculty members of Cal State San Bernardino and Dean Emeritus for the College of Social and Behavioral Sciences, wanted to increase the influence of his philanthropy at the university he decided on life insurance.

Working with the Foundation for CSUSB, which is the owner of a $10,000 policy on the retired professor, McAfee makes annual premium payments to keep the policy in force.

He chose to benefit the Albro Scholarship endowment that he initiated in 1991. In addition to financial need and academic achievement, the fund makes awards to students who are interested in studying African-American issues or who pursue service to the African-American community.

Gifts of existing or new insurance policies enable contributions to the university when a major, outright gift may not be possible. An active donor to CSUSB since the Eighties, Ward is the epitome of a dedicated university colleague who commits his own resources to enhancing the academic environment at CSUSB, said Enrique Gonzalez-Salgado, development officer for the College of Social and Behavioral Sciences.

"Ward is a forward-thinking, creative faculty member who helped establish this campus nearly 45 years ago," Gonzalez-Salgado said, "and he continues to help the College with building resources through our development council."
