You can help to ensure a Miquon education is possible for future generations of students by making a planned gift—an arrangement in your estate plans that makes a contribution to Miquon in the future. Most planned gifts to nonprofits like Miquon include significant tax benefits that will greatly benefit your heirs. When you inform Miquon that you have arranged for a planned gift to the school from your estate, you become a member of the Miquon Legacy Society, and join others who have made similar plans.
As a member of the Miquon Legacy Society, you will receive an annual update about Miquon’s activities and invitations to special events.
Have you included Miquon in your estate plans? Let us know! Your gift will inspire others, and we would love to include you in the list of members of the Miquon Legacy Society.
For more information about making a planned gift, or to notify Miquon of your estate plans, please contact Charlotte Boulay, Director of Development, at [email protected] or 610-828-1231.
“We take pleasure in knowing that a few institutions for which we care deeply will receive one last gift from us. Our gift is unrestricted, which means we trust the Board at the time to use it in the best interest of Miquon.” –James and Arabella Pope, members, Miquon Legacy Society.
Planned Giving Options
The most popular and simple giving plans at The Miquon School are:
A bequest is a donation of cash, personal property, or real estate provided in the donor’s will. The gift is most often made as a specific amount, a percentage, or a remainder amount, and can be as easy to establish as adding the following sentence to your Will:
“I devise and bequeath to The Miquon School, Conshohocken, Pennsylvania, [dollar amount of gift, or the word ‘all’, or a percentage of the estate] to be used for its general purposes ( or endowment, a specific program, etc..).”
The Miquon School can be named as the sole or partial beneficiary in your retirement plans such as IRAs, 401 (k) plans and 403 (b) plans. By naming Miquon as a beneficiary of your retirement plans, you may be able to avoid both income and estate tax, allowing you to leave your lower-taxed assets to your family. Your retirement plan administrators can provide you with the necessary information and forms to include The Miquon School in your retirement plans.
Life Insurance Policies
By naming The Miquon School as the sole or partial beneficiary of your fully-paid life insurance policy, you may be able to avoid the estate tax on the proceeds. This revocable gift is easy to arrange; simply contact your insurance company for a Change of Beneficiary form.
