1946 Heritage Society

The 1946 Heritage Society honors supporters of TJ who are ensuring its strong future through estate commitments. By including the school in their wills and other estate plans, those passionate about TJ who make a long-lasting impact.

In 1946, the school’s founders and early leaders knew that within a nurturing community, students would develop a responsibility for their own learning and desire to lift up the world with beauty and intellect. Their vision to give students the strongest possible academic background through a classical education is what inspires our mission, philosophy, and values today. 

Heritage Society  members are deeply committed to our mission statement and to the future of TJ. One of the ways they demonstrate this commitment is through their decision to include the school in their estate plans. Their generosity, like the lifelong efforts of our founders, helps ensure the school's long and bright future.

Estate gifts have long been an important source of support providing for TJ’s continued strength. Gifts can be directed toward specific operations of the school at the donor’s request.

  • Bequests
  • Charitable Remainder Trusts
  • Charitable Lead Trusts
  • Retirement Assets
  • Real Estate Gifts
