Planned Giving

Planned Giving–Penland’s Circle of Hands

Become part of Penland’s Circle of Hands by making a planned gift to the school. Planned gifts provide you with the opportunity to establish a legacy gift to Penland and to assure your continued support of the school to benefit future generations of students. If you are already a Penland Friend or a Lucy Morgan Leader, a planned gift will allow you to assure that your past support will continue and that you lend a hand in providing critical funds for future needs.

The simplest way to be a part of Penland’s future is through a bequest to the school, but you may be interested in a gift that provides you with an income for the rest of your life. Making planned gifts can provide a number of advantages, including current and future income tax deductions and effective estate planning options. Gifts may be made in your name or as an honorarium or memorial for another. You may designate specific media interests or programs that you wish to support with your gift.

Be a part of Penland’s future. To share your interest in our Circle of Hands, please call the development office, 828-765-2359, ext. 1206, or email
