Legacy Giving

Allow your support to continue beyond your lifetime.

Make a Lasting Impact with Your Legacy

Ekal Vidyalaya Foundation of USA (Ekal) has been doing unique work to uplift the lives of remote and tribal children and families for more than 30 years thru the generous support of donors like you, who not only feel a special connection to our roots in Bharat but also feel that it is our duty to uplift the lives of the needy.

In order to sustain Ekal’s mission for generations to come and to have your contribution remembered forever, Ekal is pleased to offer the option of legacy giving.

We often think of the Beneficiaries of our estate as loved ones. However, a Beneficiary can be any person or entity you choose to leave money or assets to, including a non-profit such as Ekal.

A Gift Tomorrow (Legacy Giving)

Legacy giving is one way that many people elect to support a specific cause or organization that is close to their heart. From a financial standpoint, legacy giving can be an important part of your estate, tax, and financial planning. This gift gives satisfaction of life.

Types of legacy giving to Ekal in your Estate Plan

  • Bequests of cash or assets to Ekal
  • Naming Ekal as a beneficiary of your retirement plan assets
  • Naming Ekal as a beneficiary of your life insurance policy
  • Establishing a life income gift with a charitable gift annuity

Tomorrow Would Not Be Possible Without Today

We value our donors who regularly support Ekal through current giving. While Legacy gifts allow for the creation of new outreach programs and services, current donations allow Ekal to meet the day to day needs to fulfill its mission.

If you are giving a very large gift ($100,000 or more), or if you are giving specific assets (like stocks or real estate), it’s a good idea to contact Ekal first.

STEP 3

Include details of the gift in your Estate Plan

Wills and Estates commonly include charitable donations that will go into effect upon your passing.

  • If you have not created your Estate Plan or it does not include charity giving to Ekal, please contact your tax adviser and lawyer for creating or updating your Estate Plan to include Ekal.

Why You Should Inform Ekal of Your Wishes (Legacy Giving)

While it’s not required to inform Ekal of a Charitable Bequest, it’s still a good idea to do so. Ekal loves to hear from legacy donors which allows Ekal to begin planning for the future.

Another benefit to contacting Ekal is that doing so helps to ensure your gift is planned correctly.
