Planned Gifts (Noble Legacy Society)

Oftentimes, the opportunity for a larger gift may present itself through the transfer of stocks, bonds, securities, or other investments, or by planning to leave a legacy to the school as a final gift by naming LCHS as a beneficiary in a will, IRA, life insurance policy, estate, etc.

Gifts by Will (Bequest)
This is the most common form of planned giving. A gift is given to the High School by provisions made in the donor's will designating a dollar amount or percentage of the estate. Bequests to Lexington Catholic High School are free from federal estate tax and the estate and inheritance taxes of most states. It is one of the simplest, cleanest, easiest forms of a planned giving instrument. Bequests should be drawn and executed with an attorney's advice.

Lexington Catholic can be named as a beneficiary at the time of death.
 
Appreciated Securities
