Leave a Legacy
The Parker Legacy Club honors individuals and couples who have generously named Francis Parker School as a beneficiary in the following ways:
- In their estate plans, such as a will, living trust, life insurance policy and/or retirement account.
- In a planned gift such as a charitable remainder trust, charitable gift annuity, life estate, donor advised fund, or charitable lead trust.
Since most of these generous gifts will be realized by Parker after the donor’s lifetime, the Parker Legacy Club was created to thank donors for their intentions during their lifetime. Through planned giving, membership in Parker Legacy Club is based on a desire to leave a lasting legacy to benefit Parker. No minimum amount, age or formal documentation is required to become a member of Parker Legacy Club. However, if you would like to provide this documentation, please be assured that it will be kept confidential.
There are benefits of becoming a member of Parker Legacy Club, in addition to knowing that your intentions will help ensure Parker’s future. Email or call the Advancement Office at the firstname.lastname@example.org or 858-569-7900 to learn more.
Although many of our donors are modest about us publicly recognizing their current and future gifts, please understand that allowing us to include your name helps our fundraising efforts by encouraging others to follow by your example. View the members of Parker’s Legacy Club below.
