  • Planned Giving

    Strictly speaking, every gift to Buckley Country Day School is a planned gift. Significant thought and consideration is given by the donor to make a contribution that is meaningful to him or her and will benefit the School. 

    A Planned Gift might be as simple as remembering Buckley Country Day School in your will. There are annuities, trusts, life insurance and pooled income funds. Each has specific advantages that are tailored to the donor's needs while benefiting Buckley. A donor might structure a gift to provide life income, avoid capital gains tax and pass assets to family members substantially free of taxes. 

    Information on wills or other gift planning opportunities are available through Buckley’s Development Office, however, it is strongly advised that you involve an accountant or attorney while considering such a gift. 

    Buckley's Legacy Circle was created to recognize individuals who have remembered the School in their estate plans.

  • Endowment

    The endowment for Buckley Country Day School was created by the Campaign for Excellence in 1980 and received a boost from the Building on Excellence Campaign completed in 1996. 

    Funds and financial assets contributed to the endowment generate income through prudent investments of the principal. Ideally, income from a growing endowment assists the operating budget and relieves the necessity for large tuition increases. 

    Building a strong endowment is an ongoing goal at Buckley.
