PLANNING FOR THE FUTURE The benefit of a bequest

Thank you for your generous support of our organization and our charitable mission. Your gifts are an important and significant affirmation of your trust and lasting confidence in our organization. With your help, our work will continue well into the future.

As someone who plans well and looks to the future, we would like to ask you to consider complementing your annual gifts with a long-term investment in our mission. You can increase the impact of your giving and leave a lasting legacy by including a testamentary gift, sometimes referred to as a bequest, to Hartnell College Foundation in your will or estate plan.

The benefit of a bequest is that it will not change your lifestyle. You can choose to leave cash, stock, real estate, a percentage of your IRA, or your estate to Hartnell College Foundation in your will, while also continuing to control and use your assets. Should you choose to include us in your plans, your gift will make a lasting difference to those we serve.

If you need assistance with estate planning, we have resources that can help you and your attorney.

Please do not hesitate to contact me at 831-444-2446 or email me at with questions or to let us know how we can serve you.

What will your legacy be?
