Through the planned support of our alumni and friends, McQuaid can continue making a quality private school education accessible to all academically qualified students, helping to ensure that generations of young men will have the opportunity to enjoy the benefits of a Jesuit education.

Ways to Make a Planned Gift
There are many types of planned gifts, all with their unique benefits for McQuaid Jesuit and for the donor. Choosing the right planned gift depends on your personal circumstances and financial goals.
Gift in Your Will or Living Trust
One flexible and popular method of building a charitable legacy is through a bequest for McQuaid in your will. In as little as one sentence, you can complete your gift. The bequest can be a specific sum or a percentage of the balance of your estate.
Gift of Retirement Plans
For many of us, a retirement plan is one of our most important assets—built on years of hard work and stewardship. The balance of an IRA, 401(k), or other retirement account can be, however, an expensive asset to pass onto our heirs.More Information
Gift of Real Estate
You may own investment property that has appreciated over the years, a second home you no longer need, or a primary residence you plan to sell. Whatever the property, a planned gift of real estate can provide significant support to McQuaid Jesuit and provide you with important tax benefits.More Information
Gift of Life Insurance
Life insurance is an easy way to make a gift to McQuaid that can also provide tax benefits to the donor. When the original purpose for a life insurance policy no longer applies—such as educating children now grown or providing financial security for a spouse—your policy can become a meaningful way to support our work.More Information
Gift of Stock
One of the biggest tax advantages in charitable giving continues to be the double benefit donors get when donating appreciated assets to McQuaid Jesuit instead of cash. By making a gift of appreciated securities, you can claim a charitable tax deduction for the fair market value of the securities and avoid capital gains tax on the transfer.More Information
