Learn More About Planned Giving

The Spellman Heritage Society was established to honor those thoughtful individuals who support Spellman through a planned gift. As a member of The Spellman Heritage Society, you will receive invitations to special events at Spellman and acknowledgement in Spellman’s annual report and other donor listings (unless you choose to remain anonymous).  What’s more, you will have the satisfaction of knowing that your long-term support will allow Spellman to maintain and build an even stronger foundation for our school’s future.

Charitable Gift Annuity

A charitable gift annuity pays the donor and/or other beneficiaries a fixed income each year for life. The amount of this income depends on the age of the annuitant (at least age 50) at the time the annuity is issued. A deferred gift annuity has payments beginning at a time chosen by the donor. The minimum gift amount to establish a gift annuity is $10,000 in cash or securities.
