WATCH Tower Circle

Help Us Keep the Promise….

The WATCH Tower Circle, Porter-Gaud’s Legacy Society, recognizes and honors our forward-thinking leaders who see the value of building Porter-Gaud’s endowment, to allow future generations to experience the high quality academic, athletic, fine arts and character formation that has become the hallmark of our school. We understand that few things in life are more personal than the decision to leave a gift to your favorite charity. When you make a planned gift to benefit Porter-Gaud, you will be honored as a member of the WATCH Tower Circle.

When you join the WATCH Tower Circle, you'll find special opportunities to remember, share, and connect. You're invited to share your personal story, attend special events, and be honored in publications. We feel privileged to recognize those who leave a lasting legacy. Appropriate acknowledgment and recognition will be respected, including anonymity if desired.

A planned gift may provide you with income for life, reduction of estate and income taxes, and other benefits. Consider becoming a member of the WATCH Tower Circle today! Contact Lisa Ward, Director of Annual and Planned Gifts, at 843.402.4754, for more information. If you would like to notify us of your planned gift, please fill out the Statement of Intent Form provided below.
