Planned Giving

Some donors may wish to create a highly personal and lasting legacy at CSG through an estate gift, to support students and programs far into the future, and receive tax benefits and the opportunity to experience the joy of giving during their lifetime.

For many, planning a deferred gift, such as a bequest, remains the most feasible way to make a substantial gift to CSG. We are happy to assist donors and their financial or legal advisers in achieving estate planning and ultimate philanthropy goals.

Order of the Golden Unicorn

It is our privilege to recognize donors who include CSG in estate plans as members of the Order of the Golden Unicorn. Our goal is to recognize Order of the Golden Unicorn members as a perpetual part of the CSG family, just as the donor has incorporated CSG as part of his or her own family through this exceptionally special gift commitment.

To be included in the Order of the Golden Unicorn, Columbus School for Girls simply needs a letter stating that the school will be included in your Will or Trust.

Gifts of Securities


An outright gift of appreciated securities may entitle donors to an income-tax charitable deduction for the fair market value of the securities.
