planned-givingA thoughtful estate plan can fulfill your personal financial objectives and, at the same time, ensure the long-term viability of MMI. Planned gifts such as wills, trusts, annuities, and life insurance policies represent important ways that you can help support MMI Preparatory School.  Each of these gifts has unique tax advantages.  Planned gifts typically come from a donor’s assets, rather than income, and can be either outright or deferred.  Some planned gifts, such as charitable gift annuities, can pay you income.

A few types of planned gifts are:
  • Will or Bequest
  • Gift Annuity
  • Charitable Lead Trust
  • Charitable Remainder Trust
  • Life Insurance
  • Real Estate

The Timber Society is an organization of individuals committed to the future support of MMI Preparatory School. The name of the society is derived from the wooden supports that were used in the deep mines to support the roof, as well as the earth above it. The "timbers” allowed the miners to move forward in their quest of anthracite coal as they earned a living and fueled the industrial revolution.

timber-society-logoThe symbol for the Timber Society is the White Oak (Quercus alba), which is native to the eastern United States and was harvested for use as "timbers.” At maturity, it can reach 100 feet in height and is a wide-spreading specimen whose leaves turn rich purple and wine in the autumn.

The large tree provides shade and beauty as it grows. The "timbers” permitted the deep mines to be used to extract the anthracite coal from its beds deep below the surface. The "timbers” continued to serve the people above, long after the miners completed their work.

The Timber Society recognizes individuals who have so thoughtfully and generously provided for MMI’s financial future through planned gifts. Through their foresight, they will continue to support the work being done by MMI well into the future.

If you have already included MMI in your estate plans, please let us know and we would be happy to include your name in The Timber Society.
