Make A Gift

Gifts make Park possible.

 

Our generous donors include current parents, alumni, parents of alumni, faculty and staff, grandparents and friends. 

Park's Development Office carefully stewards all gifts to honor our donors' wishes and intentions. Contributions are tax-deductible to the full extent of the law and will be acknowledged promptly in writing for tax purposes. 

Thank you for your generous support!

PLANNED GIFTS: THE FAULKNER SOCIETY

Planned Gifts: The Faulkner Society
Park established the Faulkner Society to acknowledge those individuals who have notified the School that they have provided for Park in their estate plans. Common forms of planned gifts include:

  • Bequests
  • Life-income gifts
  • Charitable lead trusts
  • Gifts of property and real estate

An investment in Park through a bequest provision or any other planned gift is a testament to one's commitment to the values of this community. Please contact Bea Sanders, Director of Development, to discuss your planned giving options and to ask any questions. Bea Sanders, sandersb@parkschool.org, (617) 274-6020

DONOR ADVISED FUNDS

Donor Advised Funds
A Donor Advised Fund, or DAF, is a philanthropic vehicle through which donors may contribute to their favorite charities. Established with organizations such as Fidelity Charitable® or Schwab Charitable, contributions to a DAF are immediately tax-deductible, and are invested and grow tax-free.  After establishing a DAF, you may recommend grants to the charities of your choice at any point. To make a gift through your DAF, please contact Audrey James, Jamesa@parkschool.org or 617-274-6018.
