Planned Giving

The Founder's Circle honors those friends of Pembroke Hill who are ensuring its strong future through estate commitments. By including the school in their wills and other estate plans, those passionate about Pembroke Hill make a long-lasting impact.

The school’s founders and early leaders believed in the simple idea that independent education makes a difference in children’s lives. Their vision and actions form the foundation upon which Pembroke Hill stands today.

Founder's Circle members are deeply committed to our mission statement, core values and to the future of The Pembroke Hill School. One of the ways they demonstrate this commitment is through their decision to include the school in their estate plans. Their generosity, like the lifelong efforts of our founders, helps ensure the school's long and bright future.

Estate gifts have long been an important source of support providing for Pembroke Hill’s continued strength. Gifts can be directed toward specific operations of the school at the donor’s request.

Founder's Circle gifts may include:

  • Bequests
  • Charitable Remainder Trusts
  • Charitable Lead Trusts
  • Retirement Assets
  • Real Estate Gifts
  • Gifts of Life Insurance
  • IRA Charitable Rollover
