Through a planned gift, you will provide ongoing support to The House and play a role in preserving the mission of this non-profit ministry. Giving through your will is a convenient way to leave a lasting legacy. After first providing for your loved ones, you may decide to make a charitable gift of a specific amount or a percentage of your estate. If you don’t have a will or if you need to make an amendment to your will, The House will reimburse up to $500 of your legal expenses if the will or amendment contains a charitable gift provision in the event of the death of both spouses for an amount not less than $10,000 or 5% of the residuary estate to this ministry. The reimbursement is also available for legal fees incurred in preparing a trust or other planned gifts in lieu of testamentary documents.
What is a planned gift?
Planned gifts, such as through a will, are set up now but are donated to charitable organizations at a later date. They offer multiple tax benefits and leave a lasting legacy. Planned gifts are an advantageous way to provide a future gift to a 501(c)3 non-profit organization.
The Legacy Donor Team
If you have decided to make The House a part of your estate plans, we would like to show you our appreciation by including you as a member of our Legacy Donor Team. From time to time we invite members to special events, highlight members in our communications and publicly recognize Legacy Donor Team members. Of course, if you inform us that you want your plans to remain confidential, we will honor that request.
