The Scholars Circle

The impact of our giving does not have to end at the end of our lifetime. Planned gifts of donor assets help Mansfield Foundation realize the future for those we serve. You can leave a bequest to establish your own named scholarship fund. Including a bequest to the Mansfield Foundation in your estate plan costs you nothing now, and through it you will continue to keep the doors of education open for deserving students. While supporting the Mansfield Foundation’s mission, you can also receive important tax benefits. Whether you want to memorialize loved ones, minimize tax obligations for your heirs, or simply find a way to ensure those issues that are important to you continue to be supported after you are gone.

Planned gifts can be a great way to continue your philanthropic legacy and many provide tax advantages to you and your heirs. We encourage you to work with your financial advisor to determine which assets to give, the best time to give them, and the type of gift arrangement that is best for you.

Have you already included the Mansfield Foundation in your estate plan? If so, please let us know so that we can thank you.
