Legacy gifts provide a way for you to help ensure the financial future of Georgetown Day School. We welcome legacy gifts and encourage you to consider including GDS in your estate plans.

Legacy giving — also called planned giving — allows you to pass on more than just possessions and money. In addition to strengthening our beloved school with your philanthropy, a legacy gift to GDS is a way to communicate your ethics and values to your heirs.

A legacy gift may offer significant tax benefits and reduce estate settlement costs while fulfilling your philanthropic goals. Please take a moment to consider including Georgetown Day School in your estate plans. Your support is our lifeline to the future. 

The legacy giving program at Georgetown Day School benefits from the advice and insights of the Legacy Giving Advisory Council. We are grateful to the members of the council for their service.
