Planned Giving

Create Your Legacy

A planned gift secures a legacy that endures - one that sustains and grows our Jesuit mission.

Donors who make a bequest or any other type of legacy gift to Loyola Blakefield become members of The Ferdinand Wheeler, S.J. Society. These individuals and families demonstrate remarkable foresight and generosity in ensuring their lasting mark on Loyola through a legacy gift to the school.

We welcome your support through a variety of legacy giving options. Learn more about ways to give below and consult your attorney or financial advisor before making a legacy gift of any type.

The Office of Development will help you with your own plans or provide you with more specific information. If you have already included Loyola Blakefield in your will or other long-range plan, please let us know. It would be the school's pleasure to induct you into The Ferdinand Wheeler, S.J. Society.

Ways to Give

List of 4 items.

  • Name Loyola Blakefield in Your Will

    You may indicate the school is to receive a certain sum of money, a particular piece of property, or a percentage of your estate. You may also indicate that the school will benefit if named beneficiaries do not survive you. A bequest to Loyola Blakefield is also deductible for estate tax purposes.

    It is not necessary to rewrite your will in order to make a bequest. A simple addition or codicil will suffice. Your legal advisors will know how to proceed.
  • Put your IRA to work for Loyola Blakefield

    The IRA Charitable Rollover allows those age 70 1/2 or older to transfer up to $100,000 annually from their IRA accounts directly to a charity without having to recognize the distribution as income.
  • Make Loyola Blakefield a beneficiary of a Life Insurance Policy

    You may own a life insurance policy that was originally purchased to fill a need, which no longer exists. For example, you may have purchased a policy to give financial support to your family in the event that you were unable to provide for them. Your children are now grown with insurance of their own, and the policy you purchased is no longer necessary. Turning such a policy over to Loyola is an excellent way to make a meaningful gift. By doing so, you may be able to claim a tax deduction equal to the policy’s replacement value (essentially the cash surrender value) and any existing premiums to be paid may be deductible as a charitable contribution.

    You can also purchase a new policy designating the school as the owner and beneficiary. Since a new policy has no cash surrender value to deduct, the advantage is that the annual premiums paid by you may be deductible.
  • Donate Real Estate or other Personal Property

    When you give Loyola appreciated property you have held longer than one year, you qualify for a federal income tax charitable deduction, which eliminates capital gains tax. And you no longer have to deal with that property's maintenance costs, property taxes or insurance.

    You can deed the property directly to Loyola Blakefield or ask your attorney to add a few sentences in your will or trust agreement.
