When you make a gift to Georgetown Prep from your will or trust, you'll join the others who share your principled commitment in The Haas Society. If you've already included Prep in your plans, please let us know so we can properly thank you and make sure your gift will be used as you've intended.
The Haas Society is named for the late Frederick J. Haas '21 to honor his example of stewardship and generosity, and farsightedness and faith in Prep's future. Upon his passing, his generous bequest provided the impetus for building Prep's humanities building, and enabled the school to increase its endowment.
Through a provision in your written and executed will, you can make a gift in the form of cash, securities, real estate or personal property. There are many types of bequests. Choose the one that best fits your needs and intentions.
Naming Georgetown Prep as the beneficiary of a qualified retirement plan asset such as a 401(k), 403(b), IRA, Keogh, profit-sharing pension plan or other donor-advised funds, will accomplish a charitable goal while realizing significant tax savings.
You can turn underperforming assets (stock, cash in a savings account, CDs, savings bonds, etc.) into a gift to Prep that provides income to you. Your Charitable Gift Annuity will give you quarterly, fixed payments for life and tax benefits, too.
When you donate appreciated stocks, bonds, or mutual fund shares instead of cash, you'll receive charitable deductions at full, fair market value while reducing capital gains impact.
If you're 70 1/2 or older, you can make a gift directly from your IRA to Georgetown Prep. While there is no charitable deduction for a rollover gift, you do avoid the income tax on the donated portion of your required minimum distribution.
Like stock, the fair market value of gifts of appreciated assets such as real estate, artwork, and other well curated collections, can be deducted from your income tax today and reduce your estate taxes in the future.
There are many giving options available to you, such as naming Prep as a beneficiary in your will and charitable gift annuities that provide steady income for you and your family during your lifetime. For more information, please find our contact info below, or submit this form.
