Legacy Gifts One of the most meaningful and common forms of gift planning is a bequest.

We encourage you to leave a legacy for future generations by including A Better Chance in your estate planning by simply adding language to your will. A Better Chance will honor your memory and your generosity. Donors may also wish to contribute together to a single, combined bequest—for example, as the “A Better Chance Class of 1963”—to leave a lasting legacy for future generations of Scholars. Contact us for more information.

Bequest Wording

We offer suggested bequest wording that you may share with your legal counsel if you would like to make a gift through your will or living trust.

Gift In-Kind

Give an in-kind donation in the forms of goods, services or expertise that will be enormously beneficial to our mission and are tax deductible. Some examples of in-kind donations include event or meeting space, excess equipment, services like photography or videography, school supplies, test prep materials, and much more.
