Gift Planning

Remembering Andover in your planning helps assure a brighter tomorrow for the Academy. Samuel Phillips Jr. and Sarah Abbot first provided for their fledgling namesakes through their estates, and, since then, countless alumni, faculty, parents, and friends have chosen to follow in the founders’ footsteps by providing for the Academy in their estates and/or by establishing planned gift arrangements that benefit PA and themselves. All donors whether through a bequest provision or a life income arrangement are automatically granted membership in the Samuel Phillips & Sarah Abbot Society.

Bequest Provision for Andover

You can remember the Academy through a simple provision in your estate. Whether giving through your will, living trust, life insurance policy or qualified retirement plan, you should make your designation for “Trustees of Phillips Academy, a charitable and educational institution in Andover, Massachusetts.”
