1893 Society and Planned Giving

Imagine the Lasting Impact Your Gift Will Make

Planned giving to St. Andrew’s makes an incredible impact on our school, provides the opportunity for a lasting legacy and comes with attractive charitable benefits for you. Planned and deferred gifts include bequests, life income plans, life insurance, and estate gifts. Many offer significant and immediate income and estate tax advantages. All offer a forward-thinking and thoughtful way to support St. Andrew’s mission to offer a transformative education to children of many cultures, any faith tradition, all socioeconomic backgrounds, and a wide range of learning profiles.
There are many ways to donate a planned gift. Not sure where to start? Contact Kerrie Donahue, Director of Development. We can help you consider your options, connect you with a trusted financial advisor, or put you in touch with other donors who have taken advantage of this opportunity.

All planned gifts can….
  • Be made in your name or can be given as a tribute gift in honor of a loved one.
  • Establish a permanent named fund at the school (with a minimum gift requirement of $50,000)
  • Be made by setting up a donor advised fund at a tax-exempt sponsoring organization (ie: the Rhode Island Foundation) and you can recommend how much and how often grants are directed to St. Andrew’s.

What donors have to say…

 “In the fall of 1985, my family and I made a pivotal decision to transfer to St. Andrew’s. During my time as a student, I received a first-class education, made close lifelong friendships, and created countless fond memories. It was one of the most rewarding and wise decisions I have ever made. St. Andrew’s was the perfect educational environment for me and fully prepared me for college and a successful career. I joined the 1893 Society to ensure that generations to come are granted the same opportunity that was bestowed upon me. 

Robert D. Ellison ‘88
"As the grandparent of a St. Andrew's graduate and a current student, I have served the school in many capacities —from helping with mailings to being a member of the Board of Trustees. I care deeply about this school, and I want to be sure that future generations of students can benefit from the powerful experience of a St. Andrew's education. That's why I have provided for the school in my estate plans."
