Planned Giving

 

There are three ways to plan your donations to the Sanford Schools Legacy Foundation:

Unrestricted Planned Giving Gifts

When a gift is unrestricted, the Foundation enjoys maximum flexibility in its funding for school programs.  Unrestricted planned giving gifts can be used at the discretion of the School to meet current, changing or urgent capital school needs.  

Planned Giving gifts may be made directly through the Maine Community Foundation (MCF). The Sanford Legacy Foundation relies on the planned giving expertise of this organization. The MCF has a pre-established unrestricted fund whose gifts are directed to the Sanford School system. The growth of this pre-established fund will assure that the students of the Sanford School system continue to benefit long into the future.

With restricted gifts, donors designate how and where they would like their gift to be used by the School System.  Donors may designate a particular school or program such as athletics, performing arts, campus maintenance and beautification or specific school programming. 

Restricted Planned Giving gifts in the amount of $10,000 or more may be made directly through the Maine Community Foundation (MCF). The Sanford Schools Legacy Foundation relies on the planned giving expertise of this organization. The MCF will work with each donor to set up their restricted gift as per the donor’s request for the benefit of the Sanford School system.

Matching Gifts

Corporate matching gift programs allow employees to effectively double or triple their gifts to the Legacy Foundation. Check with your Human Resources Department for more information.
