Living Hope Legacy Giving: Leave a Lasting Impact

Thank you for considering leaving a legacy that will make a lasting impact through Living Hope. By including Living Hope in your estate plans, you can ensure that the work you care about continues to thrive for generations to come.

Why Choose Legacy Giving?

Legacy giving allows you to extend your support beyond your lifetime, leaving a mark on the causes that matter most to you. By including Living Hope in your will, trust, or other planned giving arrangement, you contribute to the long-term sustainability of our mission. Your legacy gift will provide ongoing support to our dream of impacting those living in poverty. If you have ever considered making a major donation to a charitable organization or nonprofit, consider making it a part of your Estate Plan. There are numerous tax and legal benefits to this practice, not to mention the potential reach it could have. Charitable Gifts are often exempt from Estate Tax, meaning more of the gift would go directly to the organization. Donors can avoid capital gains taxes when they transfer assets as part of a Planned Gift — again maximizing the contribution to charity.
