Gift Planning at Westminster School

Gift planning is the sweet spot where your philanthropic goals meet Westminster’s future. If you share Westminster’s core values of community, character, balance, and involvement, consider joining the Thring Society. Your planned gift will perpetuate the excellence of Westminster’s education for future generations and allow the school to stay relevant in a rapidly changing world.
In addition to supporting the mission of Westminster, your planned gift can provide substantial tax and financial advantages, including:

  • an income tax deduction
  • reduced capital gains taxes
  • reduced probate costs and estate taxes
  • income for life

By taking advantage of these opportunities, you and your advisor can craft a contribution that fits your needs, while you support Westminster. A well planned gift makes it possible for you, your loved ones, and Westminster to all benefit.

Remain in Your Home and Make a Gift

Donate your home, farm or a second home to Westminster and receive an immediate income tax charitable deduction, while retaining the right to live in your home for the rest of your life. If you itemize your deductions instead of taking the standard deduction you could save significant income taxes.
