An impactful way to support the school is by naming GFA as a beneficiary of your will, IRA or other retirement plan, life insurance policy, or life income gift.
GFA's planned giving society, the Quisque Pro Omnibus Legacy Society, is so named for the spirit it expresses: "Each for All". Each planned gift ensures that future generations of students receive the same unparalleled education GFA has always provided and builds a legacy that lasts beyond a lifetime.

The recently passed CARES Act extends the $300 universal, above-the-line, deduction for non-itemizers through 2021 and also allows joint filers to deduct up to $600. This deduction only applies to cash gifts and does not apply to cash gifts to donor-advised funds or supporting organizations. Note that the $600 deduction for joint filers is only for 2021 – non-itemizing taxpayers claiming charitable deductions in 2020 are still limited to $300 whether single or joint filers. Additionally, the bill extends the temporary increase of limits for cash gifts through 2021 (100% of Adjusted Gross Income for individuals, 25% of taxable income for corporations). Please check with your tax or other professional advisor to confirm.
