Planned Giving

Leave a legacy and provide for the future of Roycemore School

The education you, your child or grandchild received at Roycemore School left an indelible mark on the journey made after leaving. Roycemore depends on generous gifts from those alumni and benefactors who came before you, and our future depends on those who make a commitment now.

We invite you to create a lasting legacy by naming Roycemore as a beneficiary in your will. We realize that not everyone can make a large gift today to the School that meant so much to them, but by making a planned gift you will help provide for the future of Roycemore.

Your gift may be either designated as unrestricted or earmarked for you may designate a specific area, such as the scholarship fund.

To thank you for your thoughtful generosity, you will be recognized as a member of the Rebecca Ashley Thatcher Society and listed in the annual Honor Roll of Donors.

Helping Roycemore can also provide benefits for you

As you reach retirement age, you may wish to find ways to help Roycemore that also provide tax benefits and maintain your investment income. Even designating 1% of your retirement accounts, life insurance or trust will make an impact on the mission of Roycemore School. Such gifts may be designated for endowment, capital, or current school needs.

  • Gift annuities provide a guaranteed income at rates substantially higher than savings or money market accounts.
  • A charitable remainder trust is ideal for those who have appreciated securities that are no longer producing income. These trusts grow with the rising stock market but still provide a guaranteed minimum income.
  • Life Insurance – This gift can be as simple as making Roycemore School the beneficiary of your paid-in-full life insurance policy.
  • Retirement Assets – Donating your retirement assets is not only a creative way to support our mission, it can also provide you with tax benefits and help with inheritance planning.

All planned gifts qualify you for membership in the Rebecca Ashley Thatcher Society.

Roycemore School Endowment Fund

In gratitude to the generosity of Mrs. Robert Eisner, the Roycemore School Endowment Fund was established to provide support for faculty and program-related projects. Our Endowment Fund is managed by the well-respected Evanston Community Foundation which has continued to preserve capital, holding the value of its portfolios better than most endowments.

Your gifts to the Roycemore Endowment will not only support the future of the school but also leave a secure and lasting legacy.
