Planned giving is vital to Visitation’s future. Your gift will become part of the school’s endowment, or contribute to a program that you specify, and will support initiatives vital to advancing our mission. It will provide resources that can be drawn upon year after year, helping to ensure the legacy of the Visitation Sisters well into the future.
There are several options for making a planned gift: leaving a portion of your estate to Visitation in your will, naming Visitation as the beneficiary of a life insurance contract or retirement plan, creating a charitable trust, or establishing a donor advised fund. In addition to benefiting Visitation, you may receive income and estate tax benefits. Your legal and/or tax advisor can provide additional information.
By making a planned gift to Visitation, you become a member of the DeChantal Society which recognizes and honors the generosity of those who make provisions for Visitation School in their estate plans. We invite you to become a member by making a lasting and meaningful contribution to Visitation, ensuring that future generations of students benefit from an education that is “Not for school, but for Life.”
Upon notification to Visitation of your gift intentions, you will be invited to join The DeChantal Society.
If you would like additional information about including Visitation in your estate plan, please contact the Beth Giese, Director of Alumnae and Community Engagement, via email or at 651-683-1702.
