Beneficiary Designation

One of the easiest and most impactful ways to support our School is making Anatolia College the beneficiary of your life insurance policy or private retirement account.

Charitable Lead Trusts

This is the ideal way to support Anatolia College and not give up your assets that you want your family to receive someday.

Charitable Gift Annuities

Charitable gift annuities are gifts funded by cash or securities, and Anatolia College agrees by contract to pay a fixed amount each year to you and/or another beneficiary for life.


A bequest is a statement that describes your wish to make a gift given by will to a charity of your choice.
