Creating Scholarships for Future Students

Charlotte Prescott Newton

Charlotte Prescott Newton '71 used provisions in her Will to create scholarships at SBS.

When Charlotte Prescott Newton '71 heard about the Speak Up for Stoneleigh-Burnham Campaign, she realized it was the right time to share her plans with the School.

Charlotte, a former SBS Trustee, had made provisions for Stoneleigh-Burnham School (SBS) in her Last Will and Testament when she relocated to Arizona, with the intent to fund scholarships for future students. What she hadn't done was let the School know the details of what she hoped to achieve through her gift. After talking with Susan Mattei of the Development Office about the new fundraising campaign, Charlotte's plan was put in writing through a simple fund agreement outlining her wishes.

Through the Charlotte Prescott Newton Scholarship Fund, she will leave a legacy and help ensure the School's future. "The quality of the education at SBS can never be underestimated," says Charlotte. Her generosity and commitment to SBS will give other girls the opportunity she had. "Stoneleigh-Burnham challenged me to accept responsibility, follow through and always strive to do the very best job possible."
