Planned Giving

Planned gifts to The White Mountain School enable you to make a lasting contribution to the School you love – a contribution that will have a significant impact even beyond your lifetime. When carefully included as part of your estate planning process, planned gifts such as bequests enable you to make a difference at WMS while providing first for your financial security during your lifetime and for the needs of your family. Other types of planned gifts provide lifetime income for the donor while also helping a donor realize meaningful tax savings. We suggest you consult your attorney or financial advisor before making a planned gift of any type.
 
If you intend to make a bequest to the School, we hope you will let us know. Informing us of your testamentary intentions helps us plan for the future of WMS accordingly. But more importantly, it gives us the opportunity to recognize you and thank you for your generosity by making you a member of The Bishop Niles Legacy Society.
 
We appreciate that a bequest to a charitable institution such as WMS is an expression of your strongest convictions, and that such a commitment is deeply significant to you. Therefore, we would like the opportunity to express our sincere gratitude. But we can’t thank you if we don’t know who you are! No estate is too modest for a bequest, and no bequest is too small to be important to WMS.
 
Beyond thanking you for your generosity, we hope that by recognizing you and thus increasing the visibility of the Bishop Niles Legacy Society, your gift will be an inspiration to other members of the WMS community to make a similar commitment to help ensure the long-term future of our School.

"I am confident that The White Mountain School has an educational mission worthy of my support. The Charitable Remainder Trust that I have established is a way for me to say "Thank You" to my alma mater and ensure support for future students even after I'm gone."
 
— Mary Van Vleck, Class of 1958
“White Mountain gave me a deeper understanding of the world and myself. In the
classroom and in the outdoors I was encouraged to challenge myself and push my own
limits every day. Those lessons remain a huge part of my life and work today.”
