Alumnus and donor
Gift type: Charitable Remainder Unitrust
Whether he is studying an organism too small to be seen by the naked eye or discovering the composition of a chemical compound, Ted Chase's interest in the natural sciences began during his days watching birds in the fields and forests that surround Groton. This passion would lead him to become Chairman of the Department of Biochemistry and Microbiology at Cook College, Rutgers University, to become involved with his local planning board and open space committee, and ultimately to help Groton protect the pristine landscape that inspired him so many years ago.
Through their giving, Ted and his wife, Victory, demonstrated their commitment to Groton's land conservation and helped preserve for future generations the rural character of the campus that is a hallmark of the Groton experience.
Recognizing that the School will be presented with needs and opportunities in the future that cannot be imagined now, the Chases established a Charitable Remainder Unitrust that will provide them with life income while enabling Groton to meet future challenges.
