Planned Giving

A planned gift is a charitable donation arranged during a donor’s lifetime, leaving some or all of their estate to a cause they care about. For Cedar River Montessori School, that might mean:

List of 3 items.

  • Designating Cedar River Montessori School as an owner or beneficiary of a life insurance policy or retirement plan.

  • Donating real estate or land to Cedar River Montessori School, either giving it outright or retaining the use of it during your lifetime.

  • Naming Cedar River Montessori School as a charitable beneficiary in your will with a short statement like this:

    “I, [name], hereby give, devise and bequeath to Cedar River Montessori School, an educational nonprofit 501(c)(3) corporation located at 15828 SE Jones Road in Renton, Washington, for its unrestricted educational purposes…[xx] percent of my taxable estate…or the sum of [$xx.00]…or all the rest, residue and remainder of my estate after specified obligations, taxes and expenses have been paid.”

A planned gift does not have to be complicated, but it does require careful consideration.
