Planned Giving is one way to ensure your support of Collegiate and is an important part of your estate planning. By including Collegiate in your estate plan, you make a statement of your confidence in our School and it is a powerful way to ensure our future strength. Our Helen Baker Society recognizes those individuals who have made provisions in their estate plans for Collegiate.

Helen Baker Society

Founding of the Society
For Collegiate School founder Helen Baker, her gift to the future School was her vision. In the year 2000, the Helen Baker Society was formed to honor those individuals who likewise share a vision for Collegiate. Specifically, the Society is comprised of persons who have made provisions for the School in their estate plans. Members of the Helen Baker Society have an honored status at Collegiate because their thoughtful planning ensures a future of enduring vitality for the School in addition to securing its fiscal stability. The commitments of Society members constitute one of Collegiate’s most valuable assets.
