The Luminary Society
The Luminary Society recognizes the generosity of alumni, parents, and other members of The Country School family who establish a planned giving arrangement with The Country School. Membership in the Luminary Society demonstrates a commitment to elementary education and perpetuates your relationship with The Country School.
Planned gifts include bequests, life income trusts, and other deferred giving arrangements. A bequest of any size qualifies a donor for membership in the Luminary Society. Donors are advised to consult their financial advisors who are experienced in the area of estate planning.
Unrestricted planned gifts are usually designated to the School’s endowment. Donors wishing to restrict the purpose of their gift or establish a named fund should discuss their intentions with representatives from the School to ensure that their wishes can be met.
Remembering The Country School in this special way establishes a tradition of philanthropy so important to The Country School.
