Bequests are the simplest way to make a planned gift from your estate after your death. It's the most often used.
Two members of the Legacy Society share why they chose to support NAEYC in this way:
“As a former NAEYC Governing Board member, I knew the importance of having additional resources to assist the board and staff in achieving our goals. That’s why I decided to provide a bequest that will help NAEYC continue to be a strong voice for early childhood education and will provide resources for future generations of NAEYC leaders to address issues they will face.”
NAEYC President, 1978–1980
“After providing for family members in my will, I wanted to also remember some organizations and institutions that played an important part in my professional life. My involvement with NAEYC, which dates back to its earlier time as NANE (National Association for Nursery Education), served me well throughout my more than 30 years teaching at the University of Texas-Austin.”
NANE/NAEYC Governing Board Member, 1961–1965
