St. Philippine Duchesne Society
The members of the St. Philippine Duchesne Society are a part of a very special group of individuals who have notified Berchmans Academy that they have included the school in their estate plans through bequests and other forms of planned gifts.
The purpose of the St. Philippine Duchesne Society is to recognize those who have made a planned gift to Berchmans, as well as to inspire others to do the same.
The following types of commitments, confirmed in writing and subject to certain restrictions, qualify for membership in the St. Philippine Duchesne Society:
- A bequest provision in your Will or revocable trust;
- A life-income gift that names Berchmans Academy as a remainder beneficiary, such as a charitable remainder trust, a charitable gift annuity, or a pooled income fund gift;
- A charitable lead trust that provides income to Berchmans Academy for a donor's lifetime or a term of years;
- A gift of assignment or qualified retirement plan assets, such as an IRA, 401(k), or 403(b);
