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.

Charitable Gift Annuity

How it works: Gift annuities serve as contracts between St. Andrew’s and the donor. We agree to pay a fixed sum of money to you for the duration of your life. Afterwards, the remainder is left to the school.

The benefit to you: Your gift supports the school while also guaranteeing you income for the rest of your or a loved one’s life.Allows for a one-time, partial charitable tax deduction based on life-expectancy and anticipated income stream.

Charitable Remainder Trust (CRT)

How it works: Set up a charitable remainder trust that provides you or other named individuals income each year for life or a specified period (not more than 20 years). The remaining assets are then designated to St. Andrew’s. Payment rates vary with the annual value of the trust.

The benefit to you: These trusts can allow for an immediate income tax deduction for a portion of the assets and up-front capital gains tax avoidance.

Charitable Lead Trust (CLT)

How it works: Assets are transferred to a trust that makes payments to St. Andrew’s for a specified period of time, which you choose. When the term is up, the remaining trust assets go to you, a loved one, or other non-charitable beneficiaries you select.

The benefit to you: This significantly reduces your transfer taxes for your children or grandchildren.

Real Estate

How it works: There are several ways to make a gift of real estate - including an outright gift, a bequest, a retained life estate, or bargain sale (to name a few) each with differing benefits.

The benefit to you: When you donate appreciated property you have held longer than one year, you get a federal income tax charitable deduction and avoid paying capital gains taxes.
