Most families, if given the chance, would like to leave some sort of lasting legacy to a special place that has made a difference in their lives as well as the lives of their children. The long term nature of these gifts provides a legacy that Beauvoir can rely on in planning for current and future needs, as well as giving future generations the gift of an extraordinary education.
A planned gift can offer benefits to you and your family that complement your overall financial planning. As a "planned giver" you will enjoy greater tax and financial benefits. By planning a charitable gift, your giving capacity can increase substantially. Additionally, with a charitable gift, you may be able to generate a large tax deduction, avoid capital gains on appreciated assets, save on taxes, increase your retirement income, or provide more cost-effective support for a dependent relative such as a child, grandchild, or an elderly parent.
The Maypole Society
In 2002, The Maypole Society was formed to honor those who have provided for Beauvoir through a provision in their estate plans. By becoming a member of the Maypole Society you will help shape Beauvoir’s future and leave a lasting legacy to the School. If you would like to become a member of the Maypole Society, please notify the school that you have made a provision for Beauvoir in your estate plan. There are a variety of ways to realize the benefits of planned giving.
