What to Consider When Making a Gift in Someone’s Name

When making your estate plan you have an excellent opportunity not only to support the causes you care about, but to honor people close to you in the form of a tribute gift.

Join other supporters of Xavier College Prep and give a gift in someone’s name that reflects what you and your loved one(s) hold dear in life—such as the work we do. Your gift becomes a lasting, tangible expression of the values in which that person believes.

Here is a quick checklist you can refer to as you start planning the ideal tribute gift for your loved one.

Honor Someone
Make a donation to Xavier College Prep today or leave a gift through your will or living trust in the honoree’s name.

Carry on Their Values
Decide which aspects of our organization will benefit from your loved one’s memorial or tribute gift. Because of your generosity, your honoree might be listed in a report or program, or the name could be inscribed on a plaque.

You can fund the endeavor through:

  • Appreciated stock
  • Cash
  • Inheritance given by the loved one
  • Real estate
  • Tangible personal property
