“To say thank you for all that it does to make the world a better place for so many, I have decided to include Haystack among my beneficiaries. I know that it changed my life…”
Ways to Give:
A lasting contribution can be made by naming Haystack as a beneficiary in your will or trust.
- Charitable Gift Annuities
Gifts of $25,000 or larger will result in a life income to the beneficiary. A sample illustration of tax benefits can be provided upon request. For some of Haystack’s donors, ongoing sources of income after retirement are necessary.
On November 6th the American Council on Gift Annuities (ACGA) board examined the assumptions that underlie the gift annuity rate schedules and determined that it would make no changes to the suggested maximum rates originally published as of January 1, 2012 (see chart below). The rates reflect the long-standing residuum target of 50%, plus a lower investment return assumption.

- Charitable Remainder Trusts and Charitable Lead Trusts
Dollars or other assets are donated to Haystack—donors receive an income stream from the property and when the annuitant(s) passed away the remainder goes to the school.
- Life Insurance & Retirement Plans
Donors may deduct insurance premiums by assigning a life insurance policy to Haystack as owner and beneficiary.
- Haystack Circle
In 2004, the Haystack Board of Trustees established the Haystack Circle to thank those who have provided for the school in their estate plans. Circle members are mentioned in school publications, receive special mailings about Haystack programs and events, and will be recognized in various ways throughout the years.
