Make An Impact, Leave A Legacy

Betty Rendel Scholarship & National Pathfinder Scholarship

Please contact our Endowments Director for more information.

A bequest is one of the simplest ways to donate to the National Pathfinders Fund’s Scholarship Programs. It is a gift from your estate whereby you may bequeath cash or securities through your will or designate the programs as the beneficiary of your retirement plans or life insurance. 

A specific bequest is a gift from your estate and may be made for a specific dollar amount, assets (such as securities, retirement plans or life insurance) or a percentage of your estate.

Another alternative to consider is a residuary bequest. With this option, you may leave all or a percentage of your estate to the scholarship funds after all specific or general gifts have been bequeathed and estate related expenses have been paid.

Bequests allow you to have full flexibility in giving. You retain complete control of the assets during your lifetime and have the flexibility of modifying the gift if your circumstances change. Upon informing the organization of your wishes, you will become a member of the Barbara Bush Legacy Society.
