Every person who enters our halls has a special relationship with The Wilson School. Making provisions for a planned gift is a great way to pay tribute to your unique Wilson experience and leave a legacy to this exceptional educational institution.
A Planned Gift, or bequest, is a future gift made through a donor’s will that takes effect at or after their passing. With a Planned Gift, both gift and estate taxes are avoided, and the donor does not have to part with any property or assets until after death. Distributions can be made at a specific dollar amount or as a percentage of the estate.
Examples of Planned Gifts include:
All planned giving donors will be included in the Mabel Wilson Society. This group will ensure the legacy of our founder, an innovative educator and loving woman.
