Gifts through a Trust or Will

Leaving a gift to Socrates Acadmey in your will is an effective way to support the school for years to come. There are several ways this can be accomplished. You can denote a specific amount, a percentage of your estate, or whatever may remain after all other bequests are satisfied. A gift through a Will or Trust will be recognized by name in our annual report.

Donate in Memory of a Loved One

An In Memoriam donation can be a beautiful way to honor and celebrate the life of a family member or friend. Gifts can be used to make specified purchases, for example, a room, a wing of a building or even computers for the kids. These arrangements can be made through a funeral director, or donations can be given, with the name of the person in whose memory the donations are to be collected directly to Socrates Academy. All gifts In Memoriam will recognized with a note to the giver, thanking them for their generous donation and will also be recognized by name in our annual report unless otherwise requested.
