Planned Giving

Planned giving encompasses a variety of specially tailored giving arrangements, among the most common of which are leaving money or assets to a non-profit after one’s death and investing money so that the donor receives benefits during his/her lifetime and then bequeaths the remaining funds to the non-profit.

Many planned gifts are allocated to create a named fund (in the name or memory of a loved one), but are also large enough to be a part of the Endowment.  The Foundation's endowments sole purpose is  supporting tuition assistance. Building our endowment supports the future of St. Michael’s and ensures our ability to educate young men and women who are unable to afford private education.

Both the Foundation and the High School call this special level of giving Horseman Honors.  We thank you for honoring us with your dedication and trust to continue to provide Santa Fe with quality Lasallian and Christian Brothers education.
