Evergreen Circle of Friends

You can provide for upcoming generations through a planned gift to the Friends Council by:

  • Making a Meaningful Gift
  • Leaving a Lasting Legacy
  • Securing the Future of Friends Education

The Friends Council on Education welcomes gifts of appreciated securities. You may avoid capital gains tax and take a charitable deduction for the full value of the stock. 

A bequest is a gift that can be made by almost everyone involving no immediate loss of capital or income. Tax benefits minimize the ultimate cost to one's heirs. 

A trust permits you to make a gift to Friends Council during your lifetime while still receiving the income from capital, securities, or other property involved.

Retirement Assets
You may be able to designate the Friends Council on Education as a beneficiary of your IRA or other retirement plan. This can help to reduce income and estate taxes.

Life Insurance
You can make a gift to the Friends Council on Education by taking an existing policy and making Friends Council the beneficiary; or by gifting a policy to Friends Council for its cash value, which qualifies for a charitable deduction.

To discuss these and other giving options, please email Friends Council or call 215-241-7533.

We look forward to talking with you about sustaining the vital work of the Friends Council on Education.
