Consider a lasting gift to WDS. By including the school in your will you, the donor, can be a part of the education of future generations. You can bequeath a percentage of your estate, a fixed dollar amount or a specific personal property to WDS.
Your tax advisor(s) can discuss various trusts and other forms of deferred contributions that may benefit WDS and provide lifetime income for you or a loved one. Please consult with your lawyer or financial advisor for specific tax benefits applicable to your personal situation.
The donor may have a paid up life insurance policy that the donor purchased to fill a need that may no longer exist. This policy may be given to the School with tax benefits for the donor. The donor may buy a new policy and name WDS as the beneficiary.

The only thing more rewarding than giving a charitable gift to a worthy organization is doubling your investment by getting your employer to match your gift! Many employers offer matching gift programs which provide a valuable way to increase the impact of gifts. While some organizations will not match sectarian organizations, many will, and many will make exceptions for sectarian schools. Check with your HR or Finance departments to see if your employer has a matching gift program, and if they do - make sure that we are on their approved list.
If your employer does match, simply send in the completed form along with your gift to:
Westchester Day School 856 Orienta Avenue Mamaroneck, NY 10543
