The Legacy Circle helps us keep our promise to provide the highest quality, innovative math education and financial literacy programs to those we serve. Legal and/or financial counsel should be sought when making your plans.

Some common types of legacy gifts include:
A bequest is a simple instruction in your will to give a specific gift or a percentage of the estate to the Foundation. Unless you choose to share your intentions, they will remain private as long as you are living. A bequest can be changed at any time and can be made anonymously.
Securities, stocks and bonds can have a designated beneficiary or can be given at any time for any purpose to support your charitable intentions. Assets owned for more than one year, such as stocks or real estate, may bypass capital gains taxes with their full value supporting your charity.
Charitable Remainder Trust
This type of trust is a special tax-exempt trust that can receive long-term appreciated assets such as stock or real estate and bypass the capital gains taxes.
Property that has appreciated in value and is subject to capital gains tax is an excellent asset to use for a charitable gift, either as an outright gift or to fund a charitable remainder trust. (Outright gifts of real estate are subject to the approval of the Foundation’s Board of Trustees.)
IRA and Other Retirement Assets
A gift from a tax-deferred retirement asset such as a 401(k) or a 403(b) can be made by designating the Foundation as a beneficiary.
You may designate the Foundation as a beneficiary in your life insurance policy for all or a portion of the proceeds.
