Class Giving: Make A Difference Together! When asked what they love about Springs, many alumni express an affection for their graduation class and the experiences they shared in and out of the classroom. As class members, you can share in the effort to support Springs with a gift to the ISS Annual Fund in honor of your class or a person/program/course that was meaningful to you. Together, your class can make a difference in the lives of our faculty and students. Following is a list of all classes and the percentage of class members who have given to the Annual Fund so far this fiscal year (July 1, 2012-June 30, 2013).* 2013 Reunion Classes (with class years ending with “3” and “8”) are bolded. Bragging rights will be given to the class with the highest giving percentage at the end of the fiscal year! To make your gift, visit www.WeAreSprings.org, and know how deeply we appreciate your support!

PLANNED GIVING? THINK SPRINGS! Colleges, universities, and religious organizations top the charitable giving landscape. They use direct mail, on-campus events, personal solicitations and more to help alumni and parents recognize how to use estate planning to avoid estate taxes and contribute to them. Some of the most utilized options as you consider the impact of inheritance on your heirs are to establish foundations, trusts, or community foundation funds to avoid estate taxes; make the school the beneficiary of your or your spouse’s IRA; or take out an insurance policy as well as a straight bequest. As you hear from Alabama, Vanderbilt, Harvard, Princeton, Wash U, Emory or (name your college here) about planned giving, think Springs instead! With fewer alumni and parents in the Springs community, directing your estate planning to Springs will give you exactly the same planning benefits and have a much greater impact on a community that means so much to you.

Planned gifts can add to Springs’ endowment (now at $9 million) to forever help the school with the interest generated each year. Named endowments can provide general or specific help for scholarships or programmatic support. Additionally, planned gifts can be restricted to other interests such as building and other capital or programmatic expenditures. Your interests will set your plan. Every alumnus and alumna from Springs has benefited from the generosity of alumni and parents before him/her. The cost of tuition has only been a fraction of the actual cost of educating each student from the very start of the school in 1952. Every alum stands on the shoulders of those who went before. As there are relatively few alumni and parents who are the Indian Springs School community, every commitment is significant. Please stand firm, as now future generations of Springs students rely on your help.

Event to Feature ‘Roadshow’ Appraiser Whitehurst Mark your calendars! Antiques 101, the school’s annual Parents Association’s fundraiser, will be held Saturday, October 19, from 5-9:30 p.m. on the Springs campus. The event will feature Stuart Whitehurst ’79, appraiser on the PBS hit “Antiques Roadshow,” and give guests the chance to see his appraising genius in action. Other highlights of the night will be antiques-related classes taught by Springs faculty and alumni; fine food, beverages, and live music; and a silent auction of antiques, vacation packages, artwork and much more. Antiques 101 marks the fifth anniversary of the popular “101” fundraisers for the school’s Annual Fund, which provides needbased scholarships, faculty salaries, and student activities. Tickets go on sale in August, but save the date today! For more information, visit www. indiansprings.org/ antiques101.
