Planned Giving

Planned giving is an excellent way for you to leave a legacy, ensure that your annual support lives on, and help sustain the mission of VASJ. There are a variety of options to make a planned gift with many having substantial tax advantages. Below are the models most commonly used:

  • Bequests
    Leave your legacy by making a gift in your will or living trust.
  • Charitable Gift Annuity
    An agreement between VASJ and the donor in which a gift of cash or securities is transferred to VASJ with the school agreeing to pay a fixed amount to the donor for their lifetime.
  • Life Insurance
    Leave a legacy by naming VASJ as the owner and beneficiary of your life insurance policy.
  • Retirement Account
    Leave a legacy by naming VASJ as the beneficiary of your IRA, 401(k) or other retirement plan.
