Legacy & Planned Giving


What legacy would you like to leave the world?  How about more poetry for more kids!


Consider including California Poets in the Schools in your will or estate plan. By including California Poets in the Schools into your long-range financial planning, you give the gift of poetry for generations to come, help California Poets in the Schools thrive into the future, and secure your legacy as a supporter of the power of poetry for youth across California.

This can look many different ways, but in essence, you name California Poets in the Schools as a beneficiary in your will or trust,  designating the gift of your choice (e.g., cash, real estate, personal property, life insurance, securities). You maintain control of your assets during your lifetime and often save on estate taxes.  

Gifts of Stock

We accept gifts of stock!  All gifts of stock to California Poets in the Schools are currently processed by the Marin Community Foundation, where we have a managed fund established. We will work with you to set up a gift to our CALIFORNIA POETS IN THE SCHOOLS - UNRESTRICTED FUND of the Marin Community Foundation. 

For more information about our Legacy, stocks and planned giving options, please contact Executive Director Meg Hamill at or (415) 221-4201.
