Currently, sixth-graders in Audrey Shalom’s current issues (CIRS) class are working on a three-month-long research project on topics such as depression, climate change, eating disorders and bullying. Students recently completed the first phase of the project, which included watching TED Talks, reading books, visiting websites and studying articles on their selected areas of interest.
Unlike tuition and gifts to the Columbia Grammar & Preparatory Fund that support the School’s annual operating expenses, planned gifts generate a reliable source of income that helps ensure the long term financial security of CGPS.
Donors may consider giving through such means as life insurance, bequests or charitable trusts. Gift planning can be a way to reduce or avoid estate and inheritance taxes. We encourage you to speak with your financial planner when considering any type of planned gift.
The School is pleased to provide you, your attorney, accountant or tax advisor with additional information and assistance. Pease note that this information is general in nature. Please contact your professional tax advisor to learn how this general information relates to your individual circumstances. We are most grateful for your philanthropic support.
