Planned Giving

Bequests, charitable gift annuities, trusts and other planned giving arrangements are vital to the School’s work and future. In 2006 Media-Providence Friends School established the “1876 Society”, named after the year Friends was established, to recognize those in our community who have included the School in their estate plans. Comprised of past and present trustees, parents, alumni, faculty and grandparents, its members share a deep regard for the work we do here for children in their formative years.
A gift to MPFS that is a part of a thoughtful, comprehensive estate plan provides a way of completing a lifetime of giving. It may also allow you to make a significant gift to MPFS that was not possible at an earlier stage of life. Planned gifts can provide advantages such as lifetime income and tax benefits to the donor or other beneficiaries.

We would be delighted to welcome you as a member of the 1876 Society. Please click here let us know if you have named MPFS beneficiary of a deferred gift. If you would like more information please contact Director of Development, Cynthia McGoff.
