The Ultimate Gift - a Bequest in Your Will
Friends of St. Anne's-Belfield School often seek to perpetuate their support for the School's mission. A bequest is a simple and effective way to continue your contribution to the School beyond your lifetime. A bequest uses resources that are no longer needed for yourself, to achieve your aspirations for the School:
- Endowing one’s annual gift in perpetuity.
- Providing general endowment for future needs not yet imagined.
- Underwriting the critical needs of the School.
Bequests are the most common planned gift, with almost universal appeal. A bequest to the School may well suit your needs, if:
- You have a will or revocable trust, or are ready to create one.
- You want to give while ensuring that your family is taken care of first.
- You wish to keep your options open should you wish to change your mind.
- You seek to lessen any possible estate tax.
Your bequest to the School's endowment will ensure that St. Anne's-Belfield will thrive—and its mission will flourish—regardless of economic fluctuation or unforeseen events. A bequest gift is easy to make with an attorney's help. Bequest provisions can be written to suit your exact inclination, whether that is to give the School:
- A particular percentage of the estate’s value.
- A specific dollar amount.
- A particular item of property such as real estate or stock.
