Planned Giving

We believe in Groton School because we believe in the Groton difference. Our mission is to foster a diverse and intimate community, devoted to inspiring lives of character, learning, leadership, and service. Your gift to the Groton School helps us do just that while creating a lasting impact for our students.

Did you know there are creative ways to support Groton School? Ways in which Groton School, you, and your loved ones can all benefit at the same time?

Such giving options are called "planned gifts," because with thoughtful planning, you create win-win solutions for you and for Groton. Whether giving through your will, living trust, qualified retirement plan, or life insurance policy, planning ahead is an expression of commitment through a very special and important form of financial support.

Give Through Your Estate

Give Through Your Estate
A charitable gift from your estate is a favored method of giving that enables you to achieve your financial goals and benefit Groton in ways that may not be possible through lifetime gifts.
 
No other planned gift is as simple to make or as easy to change should you ever need the assets during your lifetime. You may direct all or a portion of your estate to Groton.

Retirement Assets 

Retirement Assets
A gift of your retirement assets, such as an employee retirement plan, IRA, or tax-sheltered annuity, is an excellent way to make a gift. A gift of these assets can shield your heirs from taxes while funding Groton's future.
 
If you are 70 1⁄2 or older you can rollover up to $100,000 per year from your IRA as a charitable gift.
