Ways to Give
Parents, past parents, alumni, faculty, and grandparents can demonstrate their commitment to The Harvey School with contributions of many kinds.
Last year, 92% of our current parents and 92% of our faculty and staff made a gift to the Annual Fund to make it possible for The Harvey School to maintain excellent faculty, support the academic program, provide tuition assistance to some families, and much more.
Calling All Harvey Alumni!
We would love to have any school memorabilia that you would like to share with us. This could be in the form of photos, school publications (Rambler, yearbooks, etc.), articles from your school years, athletic or academic awards, or any personal mementos.
Original photographs can be returned once they are copied, if requested.

Every spring, the Harvey Parent Association sponsors the annual Spring Benefit and auction. In addition to being a wonderful way to meet new friends and get involved, the Spring Benefit generates much needed revenue for Harvey’s operating budget. Each family is asked to participate in some way.
These gifts include bequests, charitable trusts, gifts of life insurance, real estate or other tangible property. Depending on the donor’s circumstances, a planned gift may not only greatly benefit The Harvey School but may also provide significant tax savings for the donor.
These are two popular ways to invest in the future of The Harvey School. Charitable remainder trusts place assets in trust for the benefit of the School while a fixed percentage of the trust or annuity is paid out to the donor, a family member or other beneficiary. The donor may choose to have income paid for the life of a beneficiary or for a certain number of years. At the end of this time, these assets are transferred to The Harvey School.
Charitable lead trusts are established by transferring cash or other assets to a trustee who invests the amount transferred and pays income to Harvey for a period designated by the donor. When the trust terminates, the principal is transferred to a donor’s children or grandchildren at what may be significant gift and estate tax savings.
Bequests and Wills
This gift is an important asset in planning for the future. Bequests can take many forms, including a specific dollar amount or a portion of what remains of an estate after obligations to others are fulfilled. Donors may receive generous tax reductions for themselves and their heirs by naming The Harvey School as a beneficiary of an estate or trust. Unrestricted bequests are particularly welcomed since they provide flexibility to the School’s trustees to use the gift in whatever way is needed most. We recognize, however, that many donors have specific interests that they want to encourage and support.
Gifts for specific purposes should be described as broadly as possible. For example, a donor may want to leave a gift restricted for scholarships, faculty support or a particular program. The donor’s attorney or estate planner as well as a Harvey School representative should be consulted to accommodate individual circumstances.
If you have any questions or comments, please refer to our Gift Acceptance Policy or call the Director of Development, Laura Prichard at 914-232-3161, extension 145.
