Everybody Benefits from Great Public Schools

Your Legacy, Their Future
 
The joy of philanthropy can be yours, no matter how wealthy, healthy or old you are. You just have to be passionate about education and see the far-reaching impact your planned gift can have. Your gift of any size will help ensure your good works outlive you and enrich the education of young lives in our public schools. You may be a teacher who has nurtured those young minds or a physician who has cared for them. Perhaps you are a business owner who has strengthened our economy, a parent, a volunteer or a musician. You have benefited from this great community and now you can give back. Please take the time to plan your estate — you may be surprised to learn how many ways you can give and benefit financially today.
 
What Is A Planned Gift?
A planned gift is a gift other than cash, such as a bequest in your Will, appreciated stock gifts, charitable trusts, or life insurance. We encourage our donors to discuss their desire to leave something to the Lawrence Schools Foundation with an attorney or financial advisor. In addition to the personal satisfaction of leaving a legacy, you may also reduce your income tax, avoid capital gains tax, reduce or eliminate estate tax, or increase or defer income. Most importantly, you will continue to enrich the education provided to the students in the Lawrence Public Schools after you are gone.

Our Students. Our Teachers. Our Community
The quality of a community’s public schools affects the quality of life for its residents. Industry, small businesses, residents and college students are attracted to our city because of our excellent public schools. Our students are the future of this community. A planned or estate gift for education is an investment in many futures. We can help!
