Create a Legacy that Makes a Difference

Planned gifts and bequests help to ensure the future of Our Lady of the Elms. Your gift, regardless of its size, is important to the Elms because it reflects your commitment and dedication to the schools. Your considerate planning ensures that future students will benefit from the unique dimensions and opportunities provided by an Elms education. Additionally, you will have the satisfaction of benefiting your loved ones and Our Lady of the Elms School through your investment.

Remembering Our Lady of the Elms School in your will is a powerful expression of your consideration in the future of Our Lady of the Elms School. Many alumnae, families, and friends have found that the easiest way to make a significant gift to the Elms is through a bequest. Bequests offer the flexibility to retain and use your assets and to make adjustments to address your financial and altruistic goals.

Planned gifts enable many donors to make significant gifts they might not have felt comfortable making during their lifetime. Using a variety of planned giving instruments, donors may make a gift to the Elms that will provide lifetime payments to the donor or beneficiaries designated by the donor. The most common forms of giving are outright gifts of cash and securities, but there are other types of assets that may be donated as well and planned giving options that have favorable financial and tax benefits.

We invite you to learn more about how you can invest in the Elms. We can help you change the world and make a difference by helping you support our students, faculty, administration, and operations.
