Why support crms

Giving Down the Road – Asset, Trust & Estate Giving

A gift of an appreciated asset, or a gift in your will or trust, are easy and impactful ways to support what matters to you most. When you make a gift through a bequest or trust, you make a difference in the lives of CRMS students—now and in the future.
Below are a few examples of ways to make such a gift:

  • Estate gifts such as insurance beneficiary designations or estate (will) designations
  • Income gifts such as charitable gift annuities and charitable remainder trusts
  • Smart gifts with potential tax advantages such as IRA charitable rollovers, charitable lead trusts, appreciated real estate, gifts of closely-held stock or equities

Gifts of assets or trust or estate gifts typically are used to build CRMS’s endowed funds, ensuring that the resources needed to educate students in the future will always be available.
To learn more about how you can support what matters most to you through an asset, trust or estate gift, please contact Heath Hignight, Director of Development.

Trustee, Alumni
Supports the CRMS Annual Fund and CRMS Endowed Funds
Years of Giving: 33 Years

Why I Give:  I am fortunate to be able to give to the CRMS Endowed Fund. I feel it is a way that
the type of education I received at Colorado Rocky Mountain School will be sustained. My
ethical and moral basis, the way I have tried to live my life, has its roots in my CRMS
experience.
