Endowment and Planned Giving

Secure Your Legacy and Meet Your Philanthropic Goals—Without Spending a Cent Today

“You get to a point in your life where you are ready to give back. I can’t think of an absolutely better way to give back than to help this school which is doing such a good job giving back to our community and our country.”

— Rob Posner \ Class of ’87 \ CEO NewDay USA — Fulton MD

Endowment Giving

The general endowment provides a permanent source of income that supplements tuition and philanthropic revenue. Many Fishburne Military School alumni and friends choose to include a gift in their wills as a way to honor their education. It’s the most powerful way to invest in the future of Fishburne Military School, and have an impact for generations to come, without any cost to you today.

Endowment funds can enhance the educational program, support faculty compensation and professional development, increase financial aid and provide financial stability in times of economic uncertainty.

Everyone who creates a legacy with Fishburne Military School will automatically be invited to join the John T Hardy Legacy Club as a way to honor your commitment to Fishburne.

The John T. Hardy Legacy Club

This scholarship is named in honor of John T Hardy for his service to Fishburne. This fund supports the enrollment of talented students for whom a Fishburne education would be financially challenging.

John T, Hardy ’27, a retired national Texaco executive, is remembered by legions of the Fishburne family. As second chairman, succeeding Mr. Edmunds, he held the office until he voluntarily accepted emeritus status at the age of 93. No one ever loved Fishburne more or proved more of an inspiration.

Known for his legendary barracks tours, respectful junior colleagues on the board, former cadets and grateful parents have made gifts to Fishburne to build this fund, and to say “thank you” to honor his consummate wisdom and dedication toward so many.
