Planned Giving



The Laurence and Dorothy Leavitt Society was established in 1998 to honor and recognize alumni and friends of Vermont Academy who support the future of the Academy by making a bequest provision, life income gift, or other planned gift commitment to the Academy.

List of 1 items.

  • Sample Bequest Language

    A gift to Vermont Academy in your will or revocable trust carries a legacy that will inspire others and make a difference in the lives of future generations. A bequest:
    • Is easy to arrange.
    • Will not alter your current lifestyle in any way.
    • Can be easily modified to address your changing needs.
    Residual Bequest Language
    A residual bequest comes to us after your estate expenses and specific bequests are paid:

    I give and devise to Vermont Academy, located in Saxtons River, VT, all (or state a percentage) of the rest, residue and remainder of my estate, both real and personal, to be used for its general support (or for the support of a specific fund or program).

    Specific Bequest Language
    Naming Vermont Academy as a beneficiary of a specific amount from your estate is easy:

    I give and devise to Vermont Academy, located in Saxtons River, VT, the sum of $___________ to be used for its general support (or for the support of a specific fund or program).

    Contingent Bequest Language
    Vermont Academy can be named as a contingent beneficiary in your will or personal trust if one or more of your specific bequests cannot be fulfilled:

    If (insert name) is not living at the time of my demise, I give and devise to Vermont Academy, located in Saxtons River, the sum of $ _______ (or all or a percentage of the residue of my estate) to be used for its general support (or for the support of a specific fund or program).

    Retirement Plan Beneficiary Language
    You may name Vermont Academy as a beneficiary of your IRA or other qualified retirement benefits. Donors should consult with their tax advisor regarding the tax benefits of such gifts.

    Naming Vermont Academy as the beneficiary of a qualified retirement plan asset such as a 401(k), 403(b), IRA, Keogh or profit sharing pension plan will accomplish a charitable goal while realizing significant tax savings. It can be costly to pass such assets on to heirs because of heavy tax consequences. By naming Vermont Academy as a beneficiary of a retirement plan, the donor maintains complete control over the asset while living, but at the donor's death the plan passes to support Vermont Academy free of both estate and income taxes.

    Making a charitable gift from your retirement plan is easy and should not cost you any attorney fees. Simply request a change of beneficiary form from your plan administrator. When you are done, please return the form to your plan administrator and notify Vermont Academy. We can also assist you with the proper language for your beneficiary designation to Vermont Academy.

    To alert us to your plans or for further information please contact advancement@vermontacademy.org or Beth Crutcher at 802-869-6610.
