Endowment Giving

A Barstow Education for Generations

Ways to Give
Endowment gifts are among the most meaningful and significant donations you can make.  You are giving the gift of academic strength, endowed excellence and long-term security for our students today and in future generations.
  • Cash  Gifts may be made by personal, business or foundation check. Credit card donations are also accepted.
  • Pledges  Pledges may be made to the Endowment Fund with payments spread over a five year period.
  • Securities  Gifts of appreciated stock can be transferred to the school. Such gifts have benefits for the donor including avoidance of capital gains taxes.
  • Planned Gifts  Donors may make gifts to the Endowment through planned giving by remembering The Barstow School as a beneficiary in their will or trust. Planned gifts can also include retirement plan assets and life insurance. When donors make such provisions and notify the school of their intent, they become members of Barstow's Heritage Society.

Types of Endowment Gifts

Gifts to The Barstow School Endowment Fund are particularly valuable because they are invested for the long-term, creating a measure of financial security and independence for the school.  There are different kinds of endowment gifts that you can make.

Unrestricted Endowment Gifts Unrestricted endowed gifts place no specifications on the use of the income, which is determined annually by the school administration and the Board of Trustees.

Endowed Scholarship Gifts An endowed scholarship fund will provide an annual subsidy for future financial aid students to attend The Barstow School. Income from this fund will be awarded on an annual basis to recipients selected by the school’s administration.

Honor or Memorial Endowed Gifts One of the most gratifying experiences a donor can have is to make a gift in honor or in memory of a loved one, faculty member or friend. These gifts will live on in perpetuity at Barstow. Honor and memorial gifts can be made to unrestricted or scholarship funds.
