The Gift of a Lifetime – Making a Deferred or Planned Gift to NA

For many members of our community, supporting Newark Academy is a lifelong endeavor. For some, it means being able to support the school in a meaningful way for the first time. Others want to honor many years of loyal support with a culminating gift made from their will or estate plan. NA offers donors several options for making a planned or deferred gift, including:

  • Designating Newark Academy as a beneficiary (primary or secondary) of your life insurance policy or retirement fund;
  • Designating Newark Academy as a beneficiary in your will;
  • Providing for family members and benefiting Newark Academy via a charitable remainder trust of charitable gift annuity; or
  • Transferring a gift of appreciated securities for a gift of real property to Newark Academy.

All deferred or planned gifts made to Newark Academy are directed to the school’s endowment unless otherwise specifically directed by the donor’s documented intention. 

Donors who provide documentation of their intention to make a deferred gift to Newark Academy are recognized through membership in the 1774 Society.  We are happy to speak with you and, if you are not already working with an estate attorney or certified financial planner, we are happy to provide a list of NA alumni who can provide that expertise to you.

We also encourage you to learn more about your deferred and planned options for supporting NA by visiting our dedicated planned giving website.
