Create Your Legacy
Preserve the Past, Provide for the Future

Why should I make a long-term plan for a gift to US?
  • You believe in the mission of US and want to further its objectives.
  • You are grateful for the education you received and want to support the University School and its faculty.
  • You want to "pay it forward" so others can reap the same benefits from a US education.

What are the benefits of making a gift plan?
  • It may allow you to give a gift greater than you would during your lifetime because it can be structured to gift assets after both you and your spouse have passed.
  • It allows you to direct the way in which your assets are used after your death, rather than allowing the government to make those decisions.
  • It can provide current tax benefits and tax-efficient charitable strategies.
Steve Terrell '75, New Gift Planning Committee Chair
The University School Board of Trustees is thrilled to announce Steve Terrell '75 as the next chair of the Gift Planning Committee. Steve and Sally Terrell have been loyal volunteers at University School for years, and have been connected to the school for generations: son Jeff Terrell '03, father Bob Biggar '50, brother Mac Biggar '79, and countless nephews. Since graduating in 1975, Steve has been an active alumnus, serving the school as Class Agent and Decade Chair for the Annual Fund. He was elected a Trustee in 2007 and remains on the Board today. We are fortunate to have him lead this effort.
