I have included CDSS in my estate planning because traditional music and dance has contributed so much to me, and I want it to continue into the future. I trust CDSS to use my contribution wisely to promote the traditional music and dance forms that I enjoy so much.

This is just one of the ways I give back to the dance community. Giving back has never been a burden or chore; I contribute simply because it feels right.

Including CDSS in my estate plan was simple—all I did was take some information from the CDSS website to name them as a beneficiary. Initially I was reluctant to share this information because I don’t want credit or recognition in any form, but I came to realize that sharing this might help others make their own decisions. I am thankful I am in a position to be able to help CDSS do their fine work.
