Leave a Legacy

Get Started

Ensure that your impact and values will endure for generations.

We know you believe in the importance of sustainability—both for our projects in Guatemala and for the organization as a whole. That’s why a group of supporters have joined together to ensure that their support will continue to bring educational opportunities to Guatemalan students for generations to come through our Legacy Society.

The Legacy Society is made up of supporters who have decided to include CoEd in their estate plans.  These gifts help support the schools and students CoEd serves far into the future.

There are many ways for you to remember CoEd in your plans. The easiest and most common is to name CoEd as a beneficiary in your will, insurance policy, or IRA. You can designate a specific amount, but often people choose to set aside a percentage of their assets to the organization upon their passing or upon the passing of both spouses.

It’s easy to do. For language you can include in your will, or to learn about other ways you can meet both your financial and philanthropic goals through legacy giving to CoEd, please download our giving guide.

By setting up a charitable remainder trust benefiting CoEd, we found an avenue for giving that will not only support education for generations, but also makes sound financial sense for us personally. It is truly a ‘win/win.’

Early on, planned giving seemed to me and Ann to be an effective way of helping CoEd achieve greater financial stability, especially during those economic periods when fundraising is most difficult. With no children ourselves, CoEd has been our family and I can think of no finer way to say ‘thank you’ to that family.
