Every gift is a gift of grace, whatever the size of the donation. Viola's Huge Heart Foundation welcomes all gifts that support the education of our youth. The work of Viola's Huge Heart Foundation is grounded on the premise that education both directly improves the life of the individual and enriches society. A bequest is a life-altering gift and one of the simplest, most direct ways to make a gift to support Viola's Huge Heart Foundation's educational mission. Keep in mind that even a bequest related to a modest estate is an important contribution because it ensures the Foundation's ability to fund its growing scholarship programs.

A bequest in your will is fully tax-deductible for estate tax purposes. You may arrange for the Viola's Huge Heart Foundation to receive:

  • A specific dollar amount or percentage of your estate;

  • Specific property such as real estate, retirement accounts, stock or securities, mutual funds, certificates of deposit, savings accounts, life insurance or personal property;

  • All or a percentage of the remainder of your estate after all other obligations have been met.

You may make a bequest to Viola's Huge Heart Foundation by preparing, through your attorney, a new will or adding a codicil to your present will.

To discuss Planned Giving options with Viola's Huge Heart Foundation or to notify the Foundation of your bequest intention, please contact Foundation Representative:
