Founders’ Circle/ Planned Giving


Founders’ Circle / Planned Giving

If you value the education that Alverno provides for young women and would like to help secure its future, please consider becoming a member of Alverno’s Founders’ Circle by making a planned gift.

Types of Planned Gifts

Bequests in Wills and Living Trusts
Gifts of Retirement Assets
Gifts of Life Insurance

A planned gift is an individual decision and Alverno Heights Academy asks you to consult with an independent advisor regarding the best way to structure a planned gift. Laws related to estates, planned giving, and tax consequences are subject to change by the Internal Revenue Service regulations and/or legislation on a national or local level. A professional advisor will know tax and legal regulations that can impact your planned gift.
