Planned Giving


Become a Part of Judson’s Future

Your support today plays a crucial role in sustaining the high level of academic and innovative student care programs at Judson School, and expands Judson’s provision of programs to students who traditionally have had limited access to private Christian education. You can also be an integral part of our future by including a charitable gift within your overall estate and financial plans. With a little planning, you can leave a legacy that will ensure the access to private Christian school education is available for future generations. Contribute to  Judson School’s future by planning for a special kind of gift. Although cash contributions to the Judson Annual Fund are always appreciated, there are other creative and flexible options that can benefit you and the school. Consider a legacy gift to help us continue our commitment and contributions to the private Christian school heritage of Pasadena and Southern California.


A Gift in Your Will or Living Trust

Interested in helping Judson School with our mission but feel overwhelmed by the thought of writing another check or giving up your assets today? A simple, flexible and versatile way to ensure we can continue our work for years to come is a gift in your will or living trust, known as a charitable bequest.

By including a bequest to Judson in your will or living trust, you are ensuring that we can continue our mission for years to come. Your gift also entitles your estate to an unlimited federal estate tax charitable deduction.

Here’s an example: When James and Karen got married, they made a point to put together a will to protect their assets. They both loved Judson for the wonderful elementary education that their  three children had received and decided to include a bequest of $75,000 to us in their will.

As James and Karen’s family grew, they decided to revise their gift to ensure their children’s future financial security. They met with their attorney and simply revised the bequest language so that their gift to Judson was now a percentage of their estate instead of a specific amount. James and Karen now rest easy knowing when they die, their plans will provide for the people and charitable work they love.
