Welcome to Planned Giving
Can planned gifts make a difference to St. Mark’s and gift givers alike? The answer is an emphatic yes. Since the late 19th century, when St. Mark’s was only a few decades old, alumni, parents, and friends have chosen planned giving as a means of supporting the School and benefiting their families. Such gifts create an abiding and important connection with your School.
In 2015 there is a wide range of options for making planned gifts, and they are outlined in the pages that follow. In many ways there is an option to fit every family’s circumstances. From bequests to gift annuities to remainder trusts to gifts of artwork and beyond, there are smart and creative ways to advance the School’s mission and avail yourself of tax benefits and life income. The process begins with the decision to learn more.
We hope that we can encourage you to explore some of these options by clicking through this Web site. You will find straightforward and clear descriptions of different forms of gifts, careful explanations as to how they might benefit you, and information on how to take the next steps.
Of course we would always welcome your call or e-mail and stand ready to work closely with you to bring your gift to fruition.
St. Mark’s is a stronger school because of its great legacy of planned gifts and individuals who have made a powerful difference. We hope that you will accept our invitation to explore planned giving, and we very much look forward to hearing from you.
