|Planned Giving - Heritage Society|
Many generations of alumnae, parents, trustees and friends have chosen to support Kent Place through bequests in their will or other planned gifts. If this interests you, the Development Office will be happy to assist you and your financial advisor in establishing a planned gift for Kent Place.
Once the Development Office has been notified in writing of your Planned Giving intention, you will become a member of the Heritage Society
and recognized accordingly in Kent Place publications and the Annual Report. Planned gifts provide a substantial and significant portion of a school's endowment, and we salute those who wish to provide for the school's future in this special way.
