Planned Giving

Our students are enthusiastic and kind, filled with joy, and determination. They belong, believe, and are striving to become their best. Whether you started your journey here as a student, a parent, a grandparent, a faculty member, or a cherished friend, you also experienced each of these steps in your relationship with St. Margaret's. By considering or executing a planned gift, you have made a decision to continue to belong to the St. Margaret's family, to believe in the future of St. Margaret's, and to become a greater part of that future.

The Sara Morriss Society

Sara Morriss '37 P70 had a vision for St. Margaret’s School when she became one of the first alumnae to remember SMS in her will. She knew her gift would help St. Margaret’s build a foundation into the future and the scholarship her bequest helped establish is a testament to her belief. St. Margaret’s honors her dedication to our school and the dedication of all who choose to give to St. Margaret’s in such a meaningful way.

By joining the Sara Morriss Society for Planned Giving, you are leaving a legacy that will ensure St. Margaret's can continue to help young women reach their potential. This is truly the most graceful legacy of all, one which fulfills the St. Margaret’s motto: “As we grow in age, may we grow in grace.”

Contact Edwina Bell at 804-443-3357 x3014 or by email at with questions about planned giving or if we can be of any assistance to you, your family, your attorney, or your financial planner. If you have already made a planned gift to St. Margaret's and would like to share your generous intent with us, please do so by submitting a commitment form.

Thank you for supporting St. Margaret's and for believing great things are possible here.
