Future gifts, also known as "planned gifts", take the longer view. There are many facets to future or planned gift giving. Future gifts can range from simple bequests, to a lifetime stream of income, to life insurance policies, to creative arrangements with unused retirement-plan benefits. Some choose to make either an outright gift or a deferred gift of assets such as stocks, bonds, and property.

Endowment gifts are larger and generally given over a period of years. Often called capital gifts, they are essential to maintain the quality of education at Saint George’s and make the school more sustainable into the future. SGS is proud to have a robust endowment with its earnings supporting faculty enrichment, operations, and tuition assistance and minimizing the inevitable tuition increases needed to cover costs.
Some donors prefer to make a gift of securities (stocks and bonds) or property. Donors can discuss tax implications and charitable deductions with their tax advisor. Please contact Head of School Jamie Tender at (509) 464-8764 or via email at firstname.lastname@example.org for information about stock or property gifts.
