Legacy Giving

Your legacy gift can have a positive impact on ‘Iolani School students for generations to come.

In addition to Annual Gifts, there are other ways to support the school that can help you and your loved ones while also providing a meaningful gift to ‘Iolani School. These gifts of support are called Legacy Gifts or Planned Gifts because with thoughtful planning, you are able to leave a lasting legacy at ‘Iolani School that will benefit students for years to come. We would be honored to have you become a member of our legacy giving society, the St. Alban's Club. Click to learn more about Legacy Giving.

I'm fortunate that I'm able to establish an endowed scholarship with an estate gift to give students with great potential, opportunities to attend ‘Iolani. I'm pleased knowing that this scholarship will be there to help students in perpetuity.Ralph Klous

Frequently Asked Questions

Please click on the options below for more information.

Gifts of Property

Real Property

‘Iolani gratefully accepts gifts of real estate including a personal residence, a vacation home, a condominium, a farm or ranch, an income producing rental property, or an undeveloped land.

The donor may transfer the property to ‘Iolani during his or her lifetime (resulting in an income tax deduction) or by will at the donor's death (resulting in an estate tax deduction).

Please note: you may gift your real estate to ‘Iolani outright, to a Charitable Remainder Trust or by a single deed in which you retain the right to enjoy your residence for the rest of your life. By reserving a life interest, you get a current income tax deduction and avoid capital gains all the while living in your own home just as you did before you made your gift to ‘Iolani.

Tangible Property

‘Iolani is happy to accept gifts of fine art, jewels, and other significant items as donations.
