Planned Giving

Planned gifts through bequests, gift annuities, charitable remainder or lead trusts, retirement plans, and insurance policies can enable you to make a significant gift to Riverdale that provides immediate or estate tax benefits for you or your heirs. Riverdale Country School recognizes donors of deferred and planned gifts through membership in the Frank S. Hackett Planned Giving Society.

For more information about planned giving or to notify the school of your intentions, please contact Robin Gottlieb in the development office.

"I believe Riverdale will continue to be a leader in education. As an 'education junkie,' I see my planned gift as an investment in the school's leadership and future."
