Giving from Your Retirement Plan

How It Works

  • Name The Potomac School as a beneficiary of your IRA, 401(k), or other qualified plan.
  • Designate us to receive all or a portion of the balance of your plan through your plan administrator.
  • Pass the balance in your plan to Potomac after your death.


  • Avoid the potential double taxation your retirement savings would face if you designated these savings to your heirs.
  • Continue to take regular lifetime withdrawals.
  • Maintain flexibility to change beneficiaries if your family's needs change during your lifetime.

"A child is an innocent vessel, and you pour things into it. Your nurture your children from birth up; then, if you send them to Potomac, I think they'll make it."
