Estate and Gift Planning Guide
Circles of Giving
Would you help improve the future of early childhood teacher education?
Would you help support research in early childhood teacher education?
Say “yes” by making a bequest or other planned gift to the National Association of
Early Childhood Teacher Educators Foundation (NAECTEF).
The NAECTEF Circles of Giving recognize caring individuals who have contributed
substantially to NAECTEF or who have remembered NAECTEF in their estate plans.
By joining the Circles of Giving, you can have the satisfaction of knowing that your
generosity will leave a legacy that supports early childhood teacher education. As
you consider your estate plan, please think of NAECTEF. By keeping Early
Childhood Teacher Education in mind, you become a link in producing stronger
teachers of young children and better early childhood education programs.
The levels of giving designated for the Circles of Giving are as follows:
Gifts of $100‐$500
Gifts of $501‐$1500
Gifts of more than $1500 and/or
mention of a Foundation gift in will or trust
If you have already remembered NAECTEF in your estate plans, please contact our
Treasurer (Frances Rust) at 96 Round Hill Drive, Briarcliff Manor, NY 10510 or
email email@example.com. NAECTEF wants to welcome you as a member of its Circles of
Determining the right gift is just as important as making the gift. There are many
options in your estate planning from which you can choose. In general, one of the
simplest methods to leave a lasting legacy to NAECTEF is the bequest. Bequests are
an instrument of a contributor's will that sets aside, at death, a sum of money, a
portion of the estate, or a portion of the estate's residuary for distribution to a
charitable organization such as NAECTEF. The bequest can be small or large. It can
be unrestricted, or it can be restricted for use to a specific program of interest.
