Ways to Give
Gifts from you, our alumni, parents and friends, are a partnership with us to advance the mission of King School and continue its long tradition of excellence. By making a gift, you are making an investment in the life of King that has a direct impact on our students and their experience. All gifts to The King Fund are unrestricted unless otherwise documented by a signed agreement. Thank you for considering a gift in support of King School. We appreciate your generosity and your investment.
King School welcomes gifts of appreciated stocks, bonds and mutual funds as a great way to support the School. Not only would your contribution entitle you to an income tax charitable deduction, you may also avoid capital gains taxes. Please contact us at 203-322-3496, Ext. 335 for the information needed for your brokerage house.
Join our Circle of the Bells Society by making a planned gift! There are a variety of ways to support King School that benefit you, your loved ones, and the School all at the same time. Such giving is called “planned gifts” because with thoughtful planning, you create mutually beneficial solutions for you and King. Also known as legacy giving or deferred giving, consideration of a planned gift is a wonderful way to show your support and appreciation for King School and its mission while accommodating your own personal, financial, estate-planning, and philanthropic goals. Common planned giving vehicles include designating King as a beneficiary of a trust, life insurance policy, or your estate -- either through a residuary percentage or a fixed amount.
King is deeply grateful to our Circle of the Bells members, as their carefully considered future giving is crucial to bolstering our endowment and thereby ensuring our long-term financial stability. If you’ve already included King in your estate plans or if you’d like to learn more about the many planned gift options, please contact Christy Burkart, Senior Associate Director of Development, at 203-322-3496 Ext. 348. We would love to include your name in our recognition of those who provide far-sighted support of King for future generations to enjoy.
