“Your legacy is every life you’ve touched.” Maya Angelou

You can protect what matters most to you and also make a lasting impact at P.G. Chambers School by including a gift to us in your will. After your loved ones have been taken care of, please consider adding P.G. Chambers School as a beneficiary through a remainder designation or by designating a percentage of your estate. You do not have to be wealthy to make a lasting impact on our children. Every gift matters.

Helpful Tips

Protect Loved Ones – Wills are important regardless of your wealth. They help you to protect your children, your pets, and your legacy, while saving your loved ones stress and uncertainty.

Assure Your Wishes – Without a will, your wishes regarding your assets and who manages your estate may not be met. Instead, the government decides who receives your assets and who administers your estate.

Easy To Do – If you need to create and/or update your will, there is no substitute for using a qualified attorney with estate planning experience in your state. A knowledgeable attorney can make sure that your wishes are properly recorded, which can reduce expenses and help your loved ones receive their inheritances sooner.
