Wills and Estate Plan Gifts
Leaving a gift to Everest through a will or estate plan allow donors to schedule gifts made via life insurance plans, real estate, cash investment accounts, or IRAs. In addition to estate planned gifts, Everest provides donors with the opportunity to create a charitable gift annuity or a charitable trust.
Honorarium and Memoriam Gifts
Honorarium and Memoriam gifts can be an ideal way for donors to honor a loved one. Honorarium gifts are made in honor of someone still living, while Memoriam gifts are made in honor of those who have passed. Everest provides the opportunity to host a Mass for a loved one which can provide a wonderful gift to commemorate a special occasion or a means to offer spiritual support for someone going through a challenging situation in life.
Endowments at Everest provide a means for donors to give a gift that will produce income for Everest in perpetuity. Endowments are usually set up so that the school gains interest from the endowment without ever depleting the principal. Typically endowments require a gift of $10,000 or more to be opened. Once opened, gifts of any size can be made to increase the size of the endowment.
