You can indeed leave a legacy by naming DonorsChoose.org a beneficiary in your will.
By giving to DonorsChoose.org, you’ll be able to choose to support a 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:
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 its site.
While making a charitable bequest is as easy as using the sample language above, we also suggest you speak with your attorney or financial advisor. If you have any questions about charitable bequests, please contact our Chief Financial Officer, Geoff Hill at: firstname.lastname@example.org
