Support: Planned Giving
 /  Planned Giving

The Chester Fund is committed to supporting education in Chester for the long term.

Through a planned gift, you can help to ensure that CCSA continues to offer an exceptional educational program in the decades to come.

There are a variety of ways to make a planned gift. The simplest way to leave a legacy is to include us in your will, but you may also consider making a gift from your IRA, designating a life insurance policy to The Chester Fund, or setting up a charitable annuity.

We can help you consider a number of options to discuss with your financial advisor. Please call Donna Armand on 610.859.2998 for more information.

“In a world where poverty is hard for families to overcome, we have discovered a meaningful way to make a difference. CCSA has demonstrated that Chester’s children can grow and flourish when given access to excellent education. We have volunteered for several years at CCSA and have had the opportunity to interact with the children and love them like our grandchildren. We are excited by the prospect of providing them with the additional resources through a planned gift.”


The Chester Fund for Education and the Arts supports The Chester Charter School for the Arts (CCSA), an arts-integrated, academically rigorous, non-profit public charter school in the Chester Upland School District.
