Support the next generation of Curtis Fund students.

You don’t have to be wealthy to make a bequest to The Curtis Fund – even people of modest means can make a tremendous difference!

If you have already written your will, you can ask your attorney to add a codicil with this bequest, which is easier and more economical than rewriting the will.

By remembering The Curtis Fund in your will, you leave a legacy of hope that supports future generations of Curtis Fund students.
