Donating through a planned gift option invests in our community's future, not to mention gives numerous tax benefits to you.

In addition to the financial benefits of planned giving, honoring a loved one through a bequest donation ensure their memory lives on through intentional service to our most vulnerable populations.  You can also provide hope to those in need after you are gone via a legacy gift option.
