Endowment Fund

A gift to the Bosco Tech Endowment Fund is invested; while the principal remains intact, the school spends a percentage of the interest income. Endowment income allows the school to invest in enriched academic programs and resources, and financial aid. The endowment also provides stability and security in the event of unforeseen events.

Planned Giving

For many people, the best way to make a significant donation is through their estate. With planning and foresight, a legacy gift can assure that Bosco Tech’s mission is carried into the future. There are also significant tax benefits.

One method of building the Bosco Tech endowment is through a planned gift, or a bequest. Making a bequest is as simple as inserting a few sentences into your will. The school can also be a beneficiary of a life insurance policy or an IRA.
