How You Can Help Make College Possible

Are you interested in helping Nebraska students make college possible – especially those who are first-generation, underrepresented, or adults wanting a fresh start in life?

EducationQuest Foundation, with a mission to increase access to higher education in Nebraska, has established a Legacy Society to recognize the generosity of friends who leave a planned gift for future Nebraskans seeking college access support.

Your gift will help EducationQuest fund into the future:

  • Free college planning services
  • Need-based scholarship programs
  • College access grants for high schools and middle schools

A charitable bequest or trust distribution is generally deductible for federal estate and Nebraska inheritance tax purposes when the charitable transfer is made. You should consult with your tax advisor on the subject of tax deductibility as it may pertain to your particular estate plan.

Your planned gift could be in the form of a:

  • Bequest
  • Appreciated Security
  • Charitable Beneficiary of your Life Insurance
  • Charitable Beneficiary of your Retirement Plan/IRA

A planned gift does not affect your lifestyle today. A few simple sentences in your will or estate plan is all it takes. You may designate your gift as unrestricted or for a specific program such as Scholarships, College Planning, or College Access.
