Since 1948, Des Moines Christian School has provided an education that seeks to honor Christ. We are a school with a Christian mission statement, committed to both academic and spiritual growth. We want this mission to continue into the future. As we talk with families about their own role in this important work, we often learn that supporters have included DMC in their estate plan or are considering such a bequest. The DMC Legacy Circle recognizes our supporters who are giving in this meaningful way.
Gifts made through your will or estate plan can be unrestricted, residual or contingent and can define a specific amount or percentage of your estate. Common planned gifts include trusts, life insurance, IRAs, annuities and life income gifts such as a charitable gift annuity or charitable remainder trust.
If you have already arranged for a planned gift, please let us know your intentions so we can honor your support. Our Suggested Language for Bequests can help make your intent known in your will or with your attorney.
We are pleased to accept planned gifts through bequests, charitable trusts or life insurance to provide a future gift to DMC through your financial and estate plans. For more information, contact Director of Annual Giving Jill Van Houweling at (515) 252-2497.
