Evergreen Circle of Friends

                                " The health of our Quaker schools is directly related                                                   to the health of Friends Council.”

           Matt Micciche, Head of School, Friends School Baltimore 
 

More than ever before, today's world needs Friends education working for peace, social justice, community building, simplicity, and respect for others.

Founded in 1931, Friends Council on Education has been serving Quaker schools across the country for over 85 years.

Your planned gift to the Evergreen Circle of Friends  will perpetuate Friends Council's future services and programs for Friends schools across the country and around the world. 

Ways to Give:

Securities
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. 

Bequests
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. 

Trusts
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.
