St. Francis Society
"for it is in giving that we receive..."
These beautiful words of St. Francis of Assisi remind us of our holy opportunity and obligation to share our bounty with others. St. Francis Episcopal Day School, named for the gentle saint, has been blessed by the generosity of parents, grandparents, alumni, faculty, and friends since its founding in 1952. Having celebrated its 50th anniversary in 2002 and casting its glance toward the next 50 years, the school’s Board of Trustees has voted to establish The Society of St. Francis.
An Invitation to Join the St. Francis Society
Members of the St. Francis Society have expressed their commitment to St. Francis Episcopal Day School through a very special and important form of financial support.
These donors have named SFEDS as the ultimate beneficiary of a planned gift. Such gifts might include a bequest and/or charitable income gifts, such as charitable gift annuities, charitable remainder unitrusts, charitable remainder annuity trusts, or gifts of life insurance.
Once you complete your estate plans, please fill out our member profile form to let us know. We would like to thank you for your generosity by including you in the St. Francis Society.
Your membership involves no dues, obligations, or solicitations, but it does allow us to thank you and recognize you for the plans you have made, and it may inspire generosity in others.
Benefits of membership in the St. Francis Society also include annual luncheons, invitations to special events and seminars and a subscription to our newsletter.
The most important benefit, however, you will receive from joining the St. Francis Society is the satisfaction derived from making a lasting contribution to our long-term prosperity.
