Planned Giving

A Future Worthy of Your Investment

"I want Lincoln to be here for girls 20, 50, 100 years from now. For this reason, I have made a provision for Lincoln School in my will. As a loyal annual supporter, I know this gift will further my commitment well beyond my lifetime. It was also a smart decision for me financially."

Dione Dickenson Kenyon '72, Lincoln Foundation Member

The Lincoln Foundation

Anyone can make a meaningful planned gift to Lincoln School. It is much easier than you may believe. Many alumnae, parents and friends have included Lincoln in their estate plans to ensure that Lincoln can continue to provide an outstanding educational experience for generations of girls and young women. Today, nearly 100 alumnae, parents, trustees and friends of Lincoln School are members of the Lincoln Foundation, our Planned Giving Society. Recent planned gifts have helped support the Dwight House restoration and the renovation of the Murray Athletic Complex at Faxon Farm Renovation. These gifts have also been added to our endowment for scholarships, faculty development and new programs to help ensure Lincoln's long-term financial stability.

The following describes two simple ways to support Lincoln through a planned gift and become a member of the Lincoln Foundation.

Making a Bequest to Lincoln

Outright bequests in your will are the most straightforward way to leave a planned gift to Lincoln. Bequests to Lincoln are free of state and federal estate taxes because they will qualify your estate for a charitable deduction equal to the entire amount of the bequest. Some basic information that you will need includes:

Legal Name: Lincoln School

EIN Tax ID: 05-0258900

Address: 301 Butler Avenue, Providence, RI 02906

To make a bequest, you may want to consider the following sample bequest language:
