Legacy Gifts: Partner With Us to Change the World

A gift for Aim High in your will, trust or other plans ensures that high-quality summertime education opportunities remain accessible for decades to come. There are several different ways you can arrange a meaningful gift to Aim High. The most common gifts are described here.

If you are considering a legacy gift, we would be happy to answer your questions, but we always recommend that you work with your financial advisors to determine which gift is most appropriate for you. 

Aim High’s Legacy Society was created after the organization received a historic $5M gift. 

We see our gift to Aim High as an excellent and highly leveraged investment in education. We hope that our contribution can be used as a tool for encouraging other supporters to include Aim High in estate planning.Aim High’s Founding Endowment Donor

Why Make a Planned Gift

Making a planned gift offers you, the donor, the opportunity to be intentional about the legacy you leave. Planned gifts can be structured to serve the dual purposes of meeting charitable goals and minimizing taxes when passing wealth to your heirs. Because planned gifts are typically made posthumously, no assets are distributed during your lifetime.

When you make a bequest, you join Aim High’s Legacy Society of loyal supporters who believe in Aim High’s mission and want to ensure its transformative summer program enhances lives for generations to come. You can choose to direct your planned gift to Aim High’s endowment fund to sustain ongoing program operations in perpetuity.

It is because of our first-hand experience with Aim High’s magical impact on young people that Aim High has been, for many years, the top recipient of our philanthropic giving. It is also for this reason – the proven, long-term impact of Aim High – that it is prominently included in our estate plan. This gives us a great sense of pleasure, comfort and appreciation – knowing that our ultimate gift will, in perpetuity, assist future generations of deserving young people to aim high!
