The Legacy Society

Founded 2003

The Legacy Society was founded to distinguish and celebrate those within the Key community who have provided for the School in their estate plans.

The Key School is committed to maintaining its tradition of academic excellence while enhancing its position in the highly competitive independent school market. Members of The Legacy Society, through their generosity, exhibit foresight and concern for the School’s ability to meet this commitment.

As a member of The Legacy Society you extend to a grateful School community the opportunity to celebrate, in your lifetime, a gift that will ensure the longevity of Key’s tradition and values.
