Planned Giving: A Planned Gift is a Gift to our Future
The Sterling Hall School has been fortunate during our 32 years to have extremely dedicated, caring, and committed faculty members. They teach, guide, and nurture students beyond the classroom and help develop Sterling Hall boys into confident, intelligent, and compassionate young men.
Often, the bond that is formed between the teacher and student during the elementary school years continues long after the student leaves SHS.
A teacher's gift...
Not only are our teachers committed to the students, they also believe strongly in the values and mission of The Sterling Hall School. Often, this support is expressed in the form of a financial gift, either to the SHS Annual Giving Program, a particular capital project, or an endowment fund. Recently, a faculty member made a first-ever planned gift to SHS.
Planned gifts are important because they help provide SHS with a future base of support to ensure our continuing leadership in educational excellence. A bequest or a gift of life insurance can meaningfully transform our school’s future.
Generosity of spirit and support characterize the SHS teacher who made this gift. Humble might be another way to describe this person, who wishes to remain anonymous. This donor has given on so many levels to so many students, and now the School will continue to benefit from this extraordinary individual for years to come.
We will express our gratitude in the best way we know how. We will continue to invest in our students by providing them with exciting and innovative programs, by giving them the opportunity to explore and experience through learning, and to allow them to grow as individuals. We will also say, plainly, thank you. Thank you for helping to shape our school, for the students you have taught, and for the future that lies ahead for SHS.
