Planned Giving

Legacy Gifts

Consider the impact your estate planning has on Rumsey's future. Legacy gifts such as bequests (naming Rumsey as a beneficiary of your will or living trust) life insurance policies or charitable remainder trusts (CRT) (which generates income for you during your lifetime or other beneficiaries, with the remainder of the donated assets gifted to Rumsey) will support Rumsey Hall's Endowment and other capital projects that help ensure the School's good health and longevity. Charitable bequests can provide you and your family significant advantages by helping to reduce estate tax. Recognition and remembrance in Rumsey's Heritage Society helps inspire others to support the School in similar lasting ways.
