Leave Your Lasting Legacy
In recent years, donors have informed us of their intention to include a gift to Resurrection College Prep in their wills. These gifts provide an estate tax deduction and have a tremendous impact on our ability to provide outstanding educational opportunities for the young women of Resurrection.
Resurrection welcomes planned gifts in the form of bequests, life insurance, charitable gift annuities, life estates, charitable remainder trusts, an IRA, 401(k), or 403(b) plan. Making a bequest or any other type of planned gift may generate tax benefits to the donor, provide long-term support for the school, and entitle the donor to membership in Resurrection’s New Life Society.
