CSF’s Founders’ Legacy Society: Providing Educational Opportunity for Generations to Come

The founders of Children’s Scholarship Fund, Ted Forstmann and John Walton, left a profound legacy when they established a program in 1998 empowering low-income parents to choose a better academic path for their children.

By joining CSF’s Founders’ Legacy Society with a gift through your will or estate, you will be ensuring the continuation of Ted and John’s mission of expanding educational opportunities for all children for years to come. 

The Founders’ Legacy Society honors those who have let us know that they have included CSF in their estate plans. You can learn more about the Founders’ Legacy Society and how to join here.

Planned gifts to Children’s Scholarship Fund may include:

  • Leaving a simple bequest in your will, achievable by inserting the following language into your will: “I give and bequeath the sum of dollars US ($ ) or % of the residue of my estate to The Childrens Scholarship Fund (EIN: 13-4002189), New York, NY.”
  • Naming CSF as a beneficiary of your insurance policy or retirement plan—costing you nothing in your lifetime, but giving you the satisfaction of knowing that your assets will ensure the legacy of a quality education for decades of students to come.
