Planned Giving

Citizen Schools values your critical long term support and welcomes you as a Founding Member of the Citizen Schools Legacy Society, honoring those who have included Citizen Schools as beneficiaries of their estate or long term charitable gift planning.

We thank you for considering the following Ways of Giving to help ensure Citizen Schools long-term work and sustainability. If you would like to discuss a planned gift of any kind, we invite you to contact Priscilla Cohen at

Bequest - A charitable bequest, included in your Will can specify that Citizen Schools receive a specific dollar amount or a percentage of estate assets. A charitable bequest can be unrestricted or restricted as to purpose and use. A charitable bequest may generate estate tax savings.

Retirement Plan - Citizen Schools can be named as a Primary, Contingent Beneficiary or Partial Beneficiary of an IRA, 401(K), 403(B). You may choose simply to add Citizen Schools to a Change of Beneficiary form at any time. Citizen Schools will deeply value your contribution, and your estate may be entitled to tax savings.

Life Insurance – You may name Citizen Schools as owner/beneficiary of an existing or new life insurance policy.

Charitable Trust – Citizen Schools can be a remainder beneficiary of a charitable trust that you may establish with your financial institution or another non-profit organization. Citizen Schools appreciates your including us generously in your long-term philanthropic planning.
