Planned Giving

Sustain the school with your legacy gift

Legacy Society

The Legacy Society provides long-term financial support for Miami Country Day School. Individuals and families are supporting the financial sustainability of the school through bequests made by a will, life insurance policies, or other estate gifts.
All planned gifts add strength to the school’s endowment, which is the financial foundation for a successful educational institution. Endowed funds generate income and support scholarships, teachers, buildings, programs, and other important purposes set by the Board of Trustees.
There are many giving options available to you, such as naming Miami Country Day School as a beneficiary in your will and charitable gift annuities that provide a steady income for you and your family during your lifetime.

      John Dubois

In 2015, five days after what would have been his 88th birthday, Miami Country Day School received acknowledgement of the distribution of gifts made through the John C. DuBois Living Trust. The school received over $175,000 and while this gift will never replace Jack, it reminds us of the love and devotion he had for children, education, and Miami Country Day.
For Miami Country Day School, John C. “Jack” DuBois provided a link to the past and through his gift helped to ensure its future. Jack had a 54-year history with Country Day. He served as a faculty member from 1954 to 1981, as a teacher of history, geography, English and Latin. He fostered the development of the school’s interscholastic athletic program, coached Varsity football, soccer and baseball, and in 1979 he was named Athletic Director and the Spartan athletic teams entered into a full-scale high school varsity program. In 1987 he was appointed by Head of School Bill Creeden, to serve as Alumni Advisor working with the Development/Alumni Office.

      “As an alumnus and longtime member of the school community, I am pleased to serve as the Chair of the Planned Giving Advisory Council, and I appreciate the efforts of those who are serving the School in this important role. In varied ways, depending on one’s relationship with the school, we are all advocates for Miami Country Day and by connecting individuals who may have the inclination to consider the school in their estate planning process, we will provide significant impact on the school’s financial future by increasing endowment support.”
