Why Planned Giving?

Beyond providing for your loved ones, your will can be a tribute to the principles and values you have lived. Creating a will is the single most important step you can take to ensure your wishes will be carried out and is the best way to establish a legacy for the organizations whose work is closest to your heart.


Remembering Orange Literacy in your will with a bequest is the most common way to plan a future gift.

You may arrange for Orange Literacy to receive:

  • A specific dollar amount

  • Specific assets like securities

You can also make special beneficiary designations: 

  • On your IRA, 401K, banking or brokerage accounts

  • Life insurance policies 

Your lawyer or advisor can help arrange a bequest to Orange Literacy, but here is some basic information to note for your planning:​
