Planned Gifts

Make a planned gift that leaves a lasting impact for future generations of Bear Creek students.

Planned giving is a wonderful way to ensure a strong future for The Bear Creek School and its mission, while also accommodating your own personal, financial, estate-planning, and philanthropic goals. Legacy gifts provide flexibility to donors while supporting future generations of students through foresight and thoughtful planning.

Legacy gifts can take on a variety of forms and can include:

  • IRA charitable rollovers
  • Real estate
  • Life insurance
  • Retirement planned assets
  • Will or trust bequest
  • Life income gift

Legacy Circle

Legacy Circle

The Bear Creek Legacy Circle recognizes donors who have made planned giving to Bear Creek part of their philanthropic strategy. Legacy Circle member benefits include priority communication from Bear Creek leadership and invitations to special events throughout the year.

When you give to Bear Creek, you become part of a community of donors united in supporting our school’s mission and impacting the world. Your gift is invaluable and provides our students with remarkable experiences and the educational foundation to lead lives of wisdom, compassion, and courage.
