Thank you so much for considering DonorsChoose as a legacy gift. You can make DonorsChoose part of your legacy by naming DonorsChoose as a beneficiary in your will or as a direct beneficiary of a retirement account or insurance policy. Including a gift to DonorsChoose is a powerful way to transform classrooms for years to come.
When you give to DonorsChoose, you’ll be able to choose to support the specific school, subject, or grade level you care about. (Without specific instructions, we’ll spend the funds on the most urgent classroom project requests.) Here is some suggested language you can use in your will:
I bequeath to DonorsChoose (www.donorschoose.org, Federal tax id: 13-4129457), the sum of $___________. My intention is that the funds are to be spent on [location, school, subject area, grade level] classroom projects on DonorsChoose.
While making a charitable legacy gift is easy using the sample language above, we also suggest you speak with your attorney or financial advisor. If you have any questions about leaving a legacy gift to DonorsChoose, please feel free to reach out to our Head of Foundation Giving, Ali Rosen at: firstname.lastname@example.org
Thank you on behalf of the entire organization and of course, our teachers and students.
