Creating opportunities for the future
Leaving a legacy to Bement is a way of ensuring that the school will be able to continue its important work for future generations. We hope you will join the growing number of Bement alumni, parents, faculty, and friends who have chosen to become members of our Phoenix Society.
Members of our Phoenix Society have named Bement as a beneficiary in a will, estate plans, life insurance policy, or a bank account. Some donors choose to assign a specific dollar amount while others leave a percentage of their estate. Either way, you have an opportunity to make a gift to Bement which you could never make in your lifetime.

If you have already named Bement in your estate plans and have not notified us, please let us know so we may personally welcome you to the Phoenix Society.
Some Phoenix Society members who have chosen to share their stories with you:
Pamela Klonaris TT, P’11 ’13
Phoenix Society member since 2012
“The American Poet James Russell Lowell said, 'It is not what we give but what we share.' My husband and I are truly blessed and grateful for what life has offered to our family and feel strongly that such blessings compel us to share our good fortunes with others.
We feel that education in its broadest sense is the gift that keeps on giving. We have not restricted our gift, because we have complete faith in Bement to deploy our gift in the way that would best benefit the school and all of those who pass through it."
