Gifts in Your Will and Other Planned Gifts
Planned Giving: Your living legacy at Wyndcroft.
A bequest under your will or other planned gift can benefit future generations of Wyndcroft students. Planned gifts are placed in the endowment unless you direct us otherwise. You may also designate your planned gift to support a specific purpose or program, or simply to meet the greatest needs of the School at the time your gift is received.
For more information please contact Robert W. Evans ’65, Director of Alumni Relations and Planned Gifts, at (610) 326-0544 ext.114.

The Wyndcroft Heritage Society
The Wyndcroft Heritage Society was established in 2017, on the eve of our School’s Centennial, to honor those who have notified us that they have taken the special step of including The Wyndcroft School in their wills, trusts, or estate plans through a bequest in a will, a trust provision, a life-income gift, an IRA or life insurance beneficiary designation, or other future gift.
Wyndcroft Heritage Society membership does not obligate you legally in any way, and you may change your estate plans as you see fit.
The names of members will be published from time to time in Wyndchimes and in the School’s Annual Report in recognition of this important commitment to the future of Wyndcroft. Specific details of your planned gift will be held in strict confidence.
