    “I established a charitable remainder unitrust to benefit The Woodstock Academy. Not only was I able to make a substantial gift to benefit students for the future, but I received a large tax deduction on appreciated assets, and I will receive a steady income stream each year for the rest of my life as a result. This is a fantastic opportunity.” 

      -Paul Kelly, class of 1969
