Remembering Oakcrest in your will or living trust is a way to make a lasting contribution to the Oakcrest community. Charitable gifts made to Oakcrest in your will or during your lifetime will support future generations of Oakcrest girls and provide potential income and/or estate tax benefits for you and your estate.
Planned gifts to Oakcrest School will educate young women who thrive from an education that develops the whole person – one that encompasses academic excellence and character development, as well as cultural, athletic and community service opportunities.
As Oakcrest is a tax-exempt 501(c)(3) not-for-profit organization, a planned gift to the school may be completely free of estate tax. For more information, please contact the Development Office at (703) 790-5450 or e-mail: Development@oakcrest.org.
Find out if your employer will double or triple your gift to Oakcrest.

Memorial Gifts & Memorial Funds
Memorial Gifts may be made to honor of a member of the Oakcrest community or to remember deceased loved ones. This meaningful tribute will help honor their memory and their values for years to come. If you would like to make a memorial gift, simply make note of your wishes and send it in with the donation. If you are interested in setting up a memorial fund, please contact the Development Office at (703) 790-5450 or e-mail: Development@oakcrest.org.
A Gift of Stock
Gifts of stock offer a tax benefit in two ways. First, the donor avoids paying capital gains tax on the increased value of the stock. Second, the donor can take a tax deduction for the full market value of the stock on the date of the gift. For example, if a donor gives one share of stock to Oakcrest that was purchased for $1000 in 1990 and is valued at $1750 today, the donor will avoid paying any tax on the $750 gain from the original investment. Further, he is allowed to claim a tax-deductible gift of $1750.
You may make a gift of stock by asking your stock broker to transfer the number of shares you would like to donate to Oakcrest. For further information on how to donate stock, contact the Development Office at (703) 790-5450 or e-mail: Development@oakcrest.org.
