M. Crist Fleming Legacy Society

Live Today. Plan for Tomorrow. Strengthen the Future of TASIS.

Naming TASIS as a beneficiary in your will provides a future source of support for students, faculty, and programs at no cost to you now.

Planning a gift now through a will, trust, or retirement asset provision can enable you to establish an endowed fund or offer general support to the School beyond your lifetime. The exemplary gift of John Palmer '64 in the form of a generous bequest funded half of the costs of the Palmer Cultural Center following his untimely death. The Palmer Center has rapidly become a vibrant center of our campus, used daily in a multitude of ways. John’s affection for TASIS and theater lives on in this elegant building.

Mrs. Fleming’s lasting legacies are her schools and the young people whose eyes, minds, and hearts are opened at TASIS. Join the M. Crist Fleming Legacy Society and play a role in the future of TASIS. It’s never too early to start planning, and no bequests are too small. Two planned giving vehicles are explained in Other Ways to Give.

Paulise & Rick Bell PG '65
Christian Draz '70
