Planned Giving

Your Legacy is Our Future

Whatever your reason for remembering Foxcroft in your estate plans, planned gifts provide you with an opportunity to design a Foxcroft legacy that is meaningful to you.

Planned gifts provide donors with an opportunity to realize numerous benefits – including valuable tax benefits, augmented income, a diversified investment portfolio, and even the possibility of making a larger gift than would otherwise be possible – and to create a lasting legacy at Foxcroft.


Lorem Ipsum Dolor


Whether it was your own walk — or your daughter's walk — through Miss Charlotte's Garden, marking the culmination of your Foxcroft experience, we hope as you look back that you reflect upon how Foxcroft prepared you for the world -- unique learning experiences, strong values, human connections, and lifelong friendships.

This is why many have chosen to remember Foxcroft in their estate plans. Doing so honors the past as much as it assures the future. We encourage you to consider making a planned gift to Foxcroft and becoming a member of “Forever Foxcroft”  so that it will continue to do for generations of young women what it has done so well for more than a century.


Forever Foxcroft

Forever Foxcroft is the giving society established in 1999 by the Board of Trustees to recognize individuals who have included Foxcroft School in their estate plans, balancing their financial goals and charitable interests.

Their legacy gifts ensure that Foxcroft continues to attract and retain inspiring teachers, that financial aid will be available, and that the campus will be maintained and upgraded as needed. Forever Foxcroft embraces all alumnae, parents, and friends who have informed the School of its place in their financial or estate plans. For questions about a legacy gift, or to let us know that Foxcroft is included in your plans, please contact the Office of Institutional Advancement at 540.687.4510 or

I know now that I have a responsibility to all girls, and I can't imagine them not having the same opportunity I had ... it's why I have included Foxcroft in my will.

A Gift that Costs Nothing in Your Lifetime

Remembering Foxcroft in your will ensures that your support will be permanent and that your own needs will come first.

Insurance Gifts

A Gift Now or Later

Life insurance is a simple and practical way to give to Foxcroft, whether you give an existing policy or take out a new one with Foxcroft in mind.

Charitable Lead Trust

A Legacy Shared & Redoubled

Charitable Lead Trusts lower your estate taxes rather than pay you income. Your lead trust benefits Foxcroft while increasing your family's inheritance by reducing estate taxes.

Retirement Gift Account

A Surprisingly Easy Way to Make a Big Impact

Retirement Accounts -- 401(k) and 403(b) plans, IRAs, Keoghs, and others -- will be the major source of income for many people after retirement. Contributions to these plans are often tax free and usually grow tax free.

Charitable Remainder Trust

A Gift That Returns Income to You

A Charitable Remainder Trust (CRT) provides flexible income for one or more beneficiaries for a time period of your choosing. In your hands, and those of your advisor, your CRT can provide for any and all of your family while also remembering Foxcroft.

A Transformative Legacy Gift

With alumna Ruth Bedford '32's bequest in 2014, Foxcroft received a transformative gift of $40 million — the largest gift ever bestowed on a girls’ school in the United States, and the largest gift granted to any secondary school nationwide that year. Her bequest expresses her enduring affection for Foxcroft School.

Having Foxcroft in my will is to say, 'Thank you, Miss Charlotte! Thank you Foxcroft!' P.S. — Go Foxes!
