ESTATE & LEGACY GIFTS

The Marjorie Mooney Society

A legacy gift creates a legacy for you and your family, and helps 10,000 Degrees be there for future generations of low-income students who have a dream to earn a college degree.

Donors who have made a planned gift to 10,000 Degrees are recognized in the Marjorie Mooney Society. Named after a generous donor and San Rafael resident, the Marjorie Mooney Society is a group of generous supporters who have committed to making a gift that will leave a lasting legacy of opportunity and hope to 10,000 Degrees students and their families.

If you have included or would like to include 10,000 Degrees in your estate plans, please contact our Development Department, at 415-451-4013.

Planned Giving Options

Bequest in your will

Remembering 10,000 Degrees through a charitable bequest reduces the amount of your estate that is subject to estate tax. Click here for instructions on including 10,000 Degrees in your estate plans.

Charitable Remainder Trust

When you create a charitable remainder trust, you guarantee a gift to 10,000 Degrees in the future. In return, you receive an annual income from the assets you use to fund the trust and an immediate tax deduction.

Charitable Lead Trust

When you create a charitable lead trust, 10,000 Degrees receives the income from the trust assets for a period of time, and the remainder goes to your heirs.

Please consult your tax and estate planning professional for advice on your planned giving options.
