Planned Giving

With over a century of roots, nurtured by donors, we also seek wings for our students as we embark on our 2nd Century. Legacy gifts position EMS to continue calling students to faith, excellence, integrity and service, even as the world and our community continues to change.

You can create a plan that leaves a legacy for others in ways that honor you, your family and God. We are ready to help.

Estate gifts often strengthen the EMS endowment, joining other funds that will continue to grow and sustain EMS, far into our 2nd Century.

Deferred gifts are an excellent way for you to receive significant benefits while you’re living AND leave a legacy for the benefit of future generations AND minimize tax obligations.

The way of giving is a personal decision and must be right for the donor and their family. Eastern Mennonite School has relationships with trusted attorneys, financial advisors, Everence and The Community Foundation of Harrisonburg/Rockingham.
