Legacy Fund

The Legacy Fund provides a permanent source of income to ensure Shaker’s tradition of excellence continues for future generations. You can create an endowed Legacy Fund gift at the Shaker Schools Foundation during your lifetime or you may choose to create it through a planned gift such as a bequest, trust, IRA charitable rollover or charitable gift annuity. Your gift may support a designated purpose or program or can provide ongoing operational support. Please call Executive Director Holly Coughlin at 216-295-4329 to discuss gift types, levels and designations.
