Leave a Legacy and Open the Doors of Science to Girls
You can support Coastal Studies for Girls through estate planning options that meet your needs while leaving a legacy for others. You may be able to make a more substantial and lasting contribution than you had thought possible, as well as providing income and other financial benefits for yourself and for your family.
A bequest in your will is the simplest way of estate giving and may take the form of a percentage, a specific dollar amount, the residue of an estate, or a specific named asset including life insurance, securities, real estate or other property. Charitable bequests are fully deductible and can help reduce your state and federal estate taxes.
The following language may be helpful in drafting a bequest to Coastal Studies for Girls:
"I bequeath to Coastal Studies for Girls, a not-for-profit corporation in Freeport, Maine, the sum of $ _________ (or ___ percent of my estate or a description of the specific asset) to be used for its general purposes (or describe a specific gift designation).
The Development Office staff will be pleased to discuss different choices with you, and the school also recommends that you consult your attorney, financial planner, or tax adviser when considering planned giving options.
