Legacy Giving

One of the best ways to honor your charitable wishes for the future is through a thoughtful and carefully planned estate. When making a bequest or setting up a trust, you are assured that you will be able to care for those that you love, and support the institutions that have been so influential in your life. When planned strategically and in advance, you may event be able to leave more than you ever thought possible.  

Charitable gifts are essential to the future of Holy Names High School and to the mission of providing a world-class education to deserving young women. Donated funds allow the best and brightest young women in the East Bay to attend Holy Names where they receive the training and education that they need to fulfill their promise as the leaders of tomorrow. Many of those who receive support are also the first to give back. Holy Names Alumnae are proud financial supporters of the school and several have come back to serve as teachers and administrators.


There are four ways to make a charitable bequest:

  1. Direct Bequest
  2. Percentage or Residue
  3. Trust for Spouse
  4. Life Income Plans

If you are interested in providing a lasting legacy to the next generation of leaders at Holy Names, please contact Emily Lacroix, Director of Development and Alumnae Relations, at (510) 450-1110 x. 138 or elacroix@hnhsoakland.org.
