Keystone Science School (KSS) established an endowment fund in 2015 through The Summit Foundation. Gifts made to the Keystone Science School endowed fund are invested in perpetuity. A portion of the earned income is then used to support the fund’s purpose. Endowments may be created for the school's greatest needs, or many other purposes.
Has KSS made a lasting impact in your life or the life of someone you love? You can leave your own enduring imprint at Keystone Science School by helping to ensure our future with a planned gift. No matter what kind of bequest you are considering, there are so many ways to shape your legacy.
A bequest is one way to leave a legacy gift to Keystone Science School. A bequest is simply a gift you make through your will or trust which indicates your desire to leave something of value toward Keystone Science School future work. A charitable bequest can be a specific dollar amount or a percentage of the value of your total estate, a particular asset, a gift of stock or life insurance or even real estate.
A planned gift may also be made through your IRA, a qualified retirement plan, life insurance, or a trust and your gift may be a percentage of your estate or a stated dollar amount. Some planned gifts can even provide an income stream to you or the person you designate, and may generate a current income tax deduction for you, the donor. In many cases, making a charitable planned gift can help your loved ones offset estate taxes.
Thank you for considering Legacy Giving with Keystone Science School.
