Planned Giving

A planned gift is any major gift made in lifetime or at death as part of a donor's overall financial and/or estate plan. Planned gifts such as charitable gift annuity, lead trust, or bequest may be given to the school and/or the endowment and the donor may receive significant tax credits such as the Montana Endowment Tax Credit.


Over the years, Sussex School has been the fortunate recipient of large donations and bequests which have been invested in an endowment.
