"The value of a classical education does not lie in its immediate usefulness. It has a much higher aim than any vocational purposes: the training of the mind and character to meet life and its problems, and the filling of the mind, as Plato has it, 'with breezes blowing from pleasant places.'"


A bequest is a gift from your estate—a transfer of cash, securities, or other property made through your estate plans.


You can make a bequest to Holy Trinity Classical Christian School by including language in your will or living trust leaving a portion of your estate to the school, or by designating the school as a beneficiary of your retirement account or life insurance policy.


Remembering Holy Trinity Classical Christian School with a bequest from your estate will continue to grow young adults who possess wisdom, virtue, and eloquence.


Benefits to you:
  • A bequest costs nothing now, yet gives you the satisfaction of knowing you have provided for the young people of Beaufort for the future
  • You retain control of and use of your assets during your lifetime
  • You may modify your bequest if your circumstances change
  • Gifts to Holy Trinity Classical Christian School from your estate are exempt from federal estate taxes.
  • A bequest to Holy Trinity Classical Christian School can be made for a specific amount, for a percentage of your estate, or for all or a portion of what is left after you have made bequests to your family.


To make a gift to Holy Trinity Classical Christian School from your estate, you must sign a new will or living trust instrument, add a codicil to your present will, or make an amendment to your present trust instrument.


Alternatively, you can designate Holy Trinity Classical Christian School as a beneficiary of a retirement plan or life insurance policy. To do so, contact the retirement plan administrator or life insurance company and complete the appropriate beneficiary designation form.
