The Governor's Academy was founded with a bequest by Lieutenant Governor William Dummer.
The school’s existence, from the very start, depended upon the generosity of those who came before us. In the spirit of the Academy’s original benefactor, William Dummer, the Schoolhouse Society honors those who have included the school as part of their legacies through planned gifts. Estate gifts like bequests, trusts, and other planned gifts have remained important to the Academy throughout the centuries. The school would be a different place today were it not for the thoughtful and generous support of alumni, parents, and friends who have included bequests and other gifts in their estate plans to support our great school.
The Schoolhouse Society honors and recognizes alumni, parents, and friends who have included The Governor's Academy through planned gifts. Join the Schoolhouse Society and secure the Academy’s future. Donors aged 60 and older may count their estate and life income gifts toward the With True Courage campaign and their reunion class giving goals. Whether you choose to remember The Governor’s Academy in your will or make a gift that will generate income during your lifetime, your planned gift will further Governor’s mission and strengthen our ability to shape the future of young people.
Planned gifts include a variety of charitable giving opportunities to blend charitable and financial goals. For more information or to discuss planned giving options, please contact Tom Trafton in the Office of Advancement at 978.499.3273.
