The Olive Dame Campbell Society was established to honor those following in the footsteps of Ms. Campbell and the original Brasstown founders by leaving a legacy for the Folk School. Planned estate gifts ensure the school can continue to inspire creativity, nurture community, and care for the land well into the future. Individuals will be welcomed as Society members when they inform the school that they have remembered the Folk School with a bequest or other planned gift. There are many ways to make a planned gift and you do not need a fortune to make a big difference.
How to remember the Folk School in your will:
* A specific dollar amount or percentage of your estate
* Certain securities you choose or other property such as real estate
* Proceeds from a life insurance policy
* A residuary bequest of all or a part of your estate that remains after the
payment of specific bequests to others
You may want to share the following wording with your attorney for inclusion in your will or trust:
"I give and bequeath the sum of $____ (or ___ % of my estate, or ___ shares of X corporation) to the John C. Campbell Folk School, One Folk School Road, Brasstown, NC 28902 to be used for its general purposes."
Please contact Development Director, Kathi Osborne at 828-837-2775 or email@example.com for more information or to discuss a planned gift.
