Planned Giving

PCDS was founded with the mission of creating an educational beacon in the desert. More than a half-century later, that vision is thriving, thanks in large part to the Louis family.

The Louis Family Society for Planned Giving recognizes members of the extended PCDS community who have included the School in their estate plans in one way or another, ranging from a bequest intention to a trust arrangement.

There are many options to leave a legacy, including:

  • Fund a charitable annuity or life income gift
  • Designate PCDS as a beneficiary in your IRA or life insurance policy
  • Permanently invest in the PCDS endowment with a scholarship
  • Include PCDS in your will

To learn more, please contact Roz Abero ’89, Assistant Head of School, or Ryan Joyce, Director of Advancement

A Solid Foundation

In 1969, Dr. Herbert J. “Tim” Louis seeded the PCDS endowment, solidifying the School’s financial stability just a few years after its founding. In Dr. Louis’ honor, PCDS and the Louis family have created the Louis Family Society for Planned Giving.
