Donor-Advised Funds
Establishing a planned gift creates a charitable legacy that ensures our district delivers on its promise of exceptional teachers and extraordinary students well into the future.  Establishing a donor-advised fund (also known as a Philanthropic Fund) allows you or your designee to make grants to a broad range of qualified charitable organizations without requirements for minimum annual charitable distributions.

Bequests
A bequest in your will or trust agreement commits a specific dollar amount, a percentage of your estate, or the residue of your estate to a charitable purpose, such as public education. It’s never too early to set up a bequest and create a lasting legacy.

Gift of Life Insurance
With a gift of life insurance, you can create a large endowment, even if you don’t currently have the funds to do so. You can either name the Carroll Education Foundation as the beneficiary of the policy or use the policy to replace the amount of another donation.

To discuss these and other legacy gift options, please contact Leighanne Christon, Director of Development, at (817) 949-7064 or leighanne.christon@southlakecarroll.edu.
