Love for Linden Hall

Inspirational Planned Giving Donors share their stories.

We encourage you to join the Heritage Society to help ensure Linden Hall School has the ability to withstand time by making a Planned Gift for the future through a bequest or other Planned Gift.

Increasing Heritage Society benefactors has a transformative effect on Linden Hall, permitting the school to more accurately and aggressively plan for the future while helping keep the cost of a Linden Hall education affordable for current and future students. Each gift builds a future for Linden Hall & our students.

“Linden Hall is a vibrant school ‘home’ for many young girls. It’s where they discover themselves during an important developmental time in their lives – in the art room, music room, athletic fields, classrooms, and on the stage. It’s important for donors to understand the importance of this special school and become a part of the Heritage Society!

“Any student who is fortunate enough to attend Linden Hall is receiving the gift of a lifetime. I feel passionately that gifting back to Linden Hall will allow future students more opportunities and continued successes.”

Missy Cooper Anderson
Class of 1973

"It is with great pride that I leave Linden Hall in my will as a way of saying a lasting "Thank You" for giving me the education, guidance, and opportunities for growth that have shaped the person I have become. My hope is that Linden Hall will continue to be the wonderful school it is and this gift leaves a little piece of my heart."

"Linden Hall is a gem among girls’ boarding schools. All-girls’ education fosters an environment in which students can better concentrate on their studies and thereby develop strength and self-confidence.

Linden Hall felt like a refuge to me. The bridge—light and bright, with photographs of the girls who had preceded me—was my absolute favorite place.

Math teacher Ralph Sloat had a knack for conveying knowledge of his subject, as well as a sly sense of humor. Because of him, for the first time I actually looked forward to math class and got more than passing grades in both Algebra I and II. And then, I was thrilled and honored when Miss Burkholder, my English teacher, and Mary Ellen Cope, then editor of the newspaper, Linden Log, asking me to be Mary Ellen’s successor.

In the past several years, the School has really taken flight. New facilities have been built with the help of generous donors, academics are at an all-time high, there is strong diversification among the student body, and, of course, it has a committed faculty and staff.

An educational facility like Linden Hall with all its attributes is not an inexpensive endeavor. That is why I am asking you to strongly consider joining me in the Heritage Society by including Linden Hall in your will. I want future generations of girls to have the same memories. Don’t you?"
