Leave A Legacy That Will Last Forever!

Join the Islander Society

Gifts to the Coronado Schools Foundation are crucial to fund the STEM (science, technology, engineering and math) and Arts (visual and performing) Pathways available to all 3,100 school children enrolled in Coronado Unified School District. It is educational enrichment opportunities like these that fuel their eventual success.
As you look to leaving a legacy for future generations, did you know that your generosity could continue to fund exceptional learning opportunities for decades to come? By including the Coronado Schools Foundation in your will or trust through our endowment, you will do just that!  


As an example, let’s say Mary and Tom make an annual gift of $1,000 and would like to continue their support after their lifetime. By including a provision in their will or trust to fund an endowment gift of $25,000, their generosity will live on, with CSF returning a portion annually (4-5%) to educational enrichment programs. The remainder is reinvested, which allows the corpus to grow and support annual payouts indefinitely. This generous arrangement ensures that Mary and Tom’s $1,000 annual gift will continue long after their lifetime. Even better, Coronado Unified’s students will benefit from their generosity for decades to come. Plus, Mary and Tom will be honored in their lifetime as members of the exclusive Islander Society.


If you would like to extend your support of Coronado's public school children through the Coronado Schools Foundation to make a lasting impact, there are so many ways to give including:

  • Cash ( will or living trust, charitable gift annuity, charitable remainder trust, charitable lead trust, donor advised fund, memorial and tribute gifts, an endowed gift)
  • Appreciated Securities
  • Real Estate
  • Tangible Personal Property
  • Closely Held Stock

Whether you would like to put your donation to work today, or would prefer to do so after your lifetime, we'll help you find a charitable plan that lets you provide for your family and support the work of CSF, while benefiting Coronado's 3,100 public school children.
