Bellefontaine Society

Leave a legacy of learning, leadership, faith and compassion

Legacy giving is vital to the school's future. Your planned gift helps ensure that future generations of young women enjoy the unique benefits of a Holy Child education.

Mayfield Senior School's Board of Trustees established the Bellefontaine Society in 2005 to recognize the importance of planned gifts, and to honor these donors during their lifetimes. Membership in the Bellefontaine Society is automatic when people notify the school of their intention to include Mayfield Senior School of the Holy Child Jesus in their estate plans. Be sure to check with your CPA or tax advisor before finalizing your intentions.

If you are considering including Mayfield in your estate plans, you can bequeath a percentage of your estate, a specific dollar amount, or residue of your estate. Mayfield also accepts gifts of life insurance, gifts of retirement funds, and other deferred gifts. There may also be tax benefits for leaving cash bequests, life insurance policies, gifts of property, stocks and bonds, real estate or other gifts to the school.

For information on methods and advantages of making charitable bequests to Mayfield Senior School, please contact Director of Development Lela Diaz at (626) 799-9121 ext. 428.
