Bequests and estate gifts

Holden High School welcomes bequests and estate gifts on behalf of the school.  Planned giving is an especially meaningful way to honor the impact Holden/CCAS has had on your life or the life of a loved one and to support the ongoing work of providing a supportive educational community for teens as they navigate the challenges of the high school years.

If you are considering including Holden in your Will or Trust, please feel free to contact Mawiyah Johnson, Fundraising Manager, to discuss your options, at 925-254-0199 or mawiyahj@holdenhigh.org.   We can provide you with a written description of the types of bequests and with suggestions for appropriate wording to ensure that your wishes are carried out properly.
