Thank you so much for considering DonorsChoose.org as a legacy gift. You can make DonorsChoose.org part of your legacy by naming DonorsChoose.org as a beneficiary in your will or as a direct beneficiary of a retirement account or insurance policy. Including a gift to DonorsChoose.org is a powerful way to transform classrooms for years to come.
When you give to DonorsChoose.org, 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.org (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.org.
Alternatively, we’ve also partnered with FreeWill, an free online will writing tool, to give you a simple way to write your will and leave a gift for DonorsChoose.org today. Go here to start writing your will at no cost to you.
While making a charitable legacy gift is easy using the sample language above or using FreeWill, we also suggest you speak with your attorney or financial advisor. If you have any questions about leaving a legacy gift to DonorsChoose.org, please feel free to reach out to our Chief Financial Officer, Geoff Hill at: firstname.lastname@example.org
Thank you on behalf of the entire organization and of course, our teachers and students.
