There are many reasons and ways to include Edmonds College Foundation in your estate, but the results will be the same: student success and academic excellence at the college and throughout the community. Your legacy gift develops our leaders today and in years to come.

Bequest: Wills or Revovable Living Trusts

Through a bequest, you maintain control of your assets throughout your life. You may designate the Edmonds College Foundation with cash, stocks, bonds, and other types of property.

Beneficiary Donations - Retirement Plans, Life Insurance Policies, and Savings Accounts

This is a simple way to make a gift that bypasses probate, directly benefitting all beneficiaries. Charitable beneficiaries avoid any income tax that would potentially be due if paid to individuals. Common examples include retirement plans, life insurance policies, and saving accounts. You may name the Edmonds College Foundation as a full or partial beneficiary and include our tax ID number.

Donating Real Estate

A retained life estate arrangement allows you to donate the remainder interest in your home to the Edmonds College Foundation and retain lifetime residency rights. OUr staff can work with you and your advisors on a gift of residential or commercial real estate to the Foundation. There may be significant tax benefits through a gift of real estate.

Charitable Remainder Trust

A Charitable Remainder Trust is an irrevocable transfer of cash or assets managed by a trustee who pays income to you and other beneficiaries.

Charitable Lead Trust

A Charitable Lead Trust allows you to make a gift immediately while providing for the eventual transfer of wealth to your heirs at greatly reduced gift and estate tax rates.
