The Sheffield Society (previously known as the Hawken Heritage Society) was formalized in the 1990s as a way to recognize appropriately those individuals who have included Hawken School in their estate plans. Increasingly, alumni, parents, and friends use planned giving techniques to add to gifts made to Hakwen during their lifetime.

A planned gift refers to any charitable gift, current or deferred, which is planned - usually with professional advice - to optimize the donor's financial, tax, and estate plans. Anyone who lets the School know in writing that they have made a legacy commitment in the form of: a bequest; a life income instrument; a beneficiary designation of a retirement plan or insurance policy; or other estate planning tool is granted membership in this Society. Because members play an inegral part in shaping future generations of gifted students, we encourage you to consider joining other leaders and benefactors who have made a commitment to the Sheffield Society.


The chief advantages of a planned gift to donors are:
  • Can generate a stream of income to you and/or other beneficiaries you choose to name for life or a specified term of years
  • Allows you to convert low yield assets into an arrangement that will produce a higher income stream
  • Can increase your lifetime giving potential
  • Can permanently link your name to Hawken by creating an endowed fund
  • Can reduce or eliminate capital gains and estate taxes
  • Lets your heirs and the community know that you value the work of the School
