A Journey for Life, A Legacy of Leadership

Gifts Transform Opportunities to Impact Education Worldwide

The DKG Legacy Leadership Program provides members the opportunity for planned giving that will assure continued support of the Society into the future. Planned giving may be established by various methods through estate planning and giving. DKG Legacy Leaders may opt to specify funds for their gifts.

DKG Legacy Leadership Program Benefits

Members who document intent to support the Society through planned giving for programs benefiting women educators will be recognized as DKG Legacy Leaders. 

Tax Benefits of Planned Gifts

DKG Supporting Corporation funds and the Educational Foundation are classed nonprofit 501(c)(3) tax exempt and bequests to those funds are exempt from US estate tax and may qualify for tax benefits in other DKG member countries. Estate attorneys and financial professionals can provide advice about tax benefits.
