Planned Giving

Durham Academy encourages planned gifts as a way to provide support for future students. In many cases, a deferred gift enables a donor to make a more significant contribution than would be possible through an outright gift. Planned gifts require careful thought and analysis with a mindful eye toward income, estate and tax consequences. You can provide for your family and ensure that future DA students have all the advantages that your family has enjoyed. And, by including charitable gifts in your will, you may create significant tax advantages for your estate.

Durham Academy has established a special club called The Founder’s Society to recognize individuals who support the school through planned gifts such as bequests, irrevocable trusts and life insurance. We invite you to join this special group of friends who have included DA in their estate plans. Contributions to The Founder’s Society will create an enduring legacy for generations to come.

If you are interested in making a planned gift to Durham Academy, please contact Leslie Holdsworth, Director of Development, at 919-489-6569, ext. 6148, or leslie.holdsworth@da.org.
