Ways to Give

Commemorative and Legacy Gifts



In honor of

Commemorative Gift

A gift in honor or a memorial donation is a unique way to acknowledge that extraordinary individual in your life.  Your donation helps the Oxford Educational Foundation provide a wide range of programs and services to children and teachers of the Oxford Area School District. “In Honor of” and “In Memory of” gifts are wonderful ways to express your appreciation.

Make the world better

Leaving a Legacy

We all want to be remembered, to feel as if we’ve contributed something to the world. Your legacy is putting your stamp on the future. It’s a way to make some meaning of your existence. Leave the ultimate legacy by giving a contribution that has the power to change the lives of generations to come in our community. With your support, donors can ensure that their contributions will be used wisely to sustain Oxford Educational Foundation’s programs/services, and extend their personal support of causes that are important to them far beyond their lifetime. Gifts can be made through a bequest in a will or trust, Qualified Charitable Distribution, Beneficiary Designation from IRA or Life Insurance, or Charitable Gift Annuities. For more information on making a planned gift, please contact the OEF Executive Director, Dr. Raymond Fischer.

Make your wishes known

The Leaving a Legacy Society

Those who remember the Oxford Education Foundation through a designation in their will, trust or other planned gift are invited to inform us of their intentions and join in The Leaving a Legacy Society. Too often, we are unaware of these special gifts until the donor has passed away. At these times, proper appreciation cannot be expressed and questions regarding the specific purpose of the gift may remain unanswered. The Leaving a Legacy Society provides a way to recognize and thank donors during their lifetime(s), and ensure that your wishes are properly understood. Please contact the OEF Executive Director, Dr. Raymond Fischer.
