Planned Giving: A Lasting Gift. An Indelible Legacy
For over 82 years, Fontbonne has provided the finest all-girls Catholic education in New York. Now more than ever, as costly changes become necessities rather than “niceties”, we need your help to secure the future for generations of Bonnies.
As a simple definition, Planned Giving is the means of creating charitable gifts for you to realize your philanthropic objectives and simultaneously minimize your after-tax costs. These type of gifts to Fontbonne will help safeguard the foundational Josephite education that has molded thousands of success stories.
Hundreds of other schools have found that Planned Giving is one of the most effective ways to ensure the on-going success of their school and their programs. It can be the financial safety net we need here at Fontbonne to keep tuition affordable, to make critical improvements to our physical plant and to continually update academic resources to attract and nurture talented students. By deciding to be a “Planned Giver,” you will be helping hundreds of young women for years to come, and you will also be named a founding member of the FHA Bridge to the Future Society.
