Make a Legacy Gift
About Anacortes Schools Foundation
Leave a legacy of education with planned giving through a will or retirement plan/IRA with Anacortes Schools Foundation's planned gift opportunities.
ASF Legacy Society
The ASF Legacy Society will identify and recognize individuals who have included ASF in their will or estate plan (unless the donor desires anonymity). All planned gifts qualify one for membership, regardless of dollar amount and regardless of whether the commitment is revocable or irrevocable. ASF requests that donors provide a copy of the legal document that references the donor's gift, but documents are not required for listing in the Legacy Society. In the absence of the above, ASF requires a written statement from the donor summarizing the gift arrangement.
ASF will always remain cognizant of the donor's needs and desires and reserves the right to refuse any planned gift, or enter into any planned gift arrangement, that is not in ASF's best interest.
Your investment in students, public education, teachers and ultimately the community, is one of the most impactful investments you can make.

First to Join
The first donors to join the ASF Legacy Society were Anacortes residents Greg and Sue Monaghan. The Monaghans believe “few causes in life can have a greater influence on a young person's journey than the gift of a formal education or advanced training in a trade.” They have pledged to endow a scholarship for a student graduating from Cap Sante High School through their estate. And, because they want to see their giving in action and meet some of their recipients, they are also funding an annual scholarship.
Endowments like the Monaghan's are a means for donors to effectively support educational excellence in the Anacortes School District and leave a lasting legacy in the community. ASF is governed by a board of directors who provide stewardship for, and disburse the earnings from, these endowment funds. Donors may designate earnings for a specific purpose like scholarships, STEM, or early learning, or allow ASF to determine where the needs are greatest.
