- Bequests. Gifts made through a will are important legacies to provide for the future of Brentwood College. If you are planning to make a provision for the school, we would appreciate being advised so we can recognize your generosity. A gift may be stated as a specific dollar amount, a percentage of the estate or the residual of the estate.
- Trust Funds. A trust can be established in memory of someone or for a specific purpose. We will be pleased to discuss options of mutual benefit to both the individual and the school.
- Life insurance provides an affordable way to make a significant non-taxable contribution because the proceeds are completely separate from your estate. By establishing a life insurance policy in Brentwood's name, you can benefit from immediate tax deductions on your monthly premiums.
- Real Estate or "In-Kind" gifts. Individuals may donate land, buildings or other assets such as artwork, to Brentwood College. Such gifts are appraised on the date received and an official tax receipt is issued for the appraised value.
