Non-profit organizations, like Respite Care, benefit greatly from gifts left through wills and estates. If this is something you’ve considered – or would like to do – here are ten steps to follow to Leave Your Legacy. You can make a difference for a long time to come!

  • Prepare a will so you can intentionally determine your legacy at the time of your passing.
  • Evaluate your financial situation and determine your charitable goals.
  • Consult an attorney, accountant or financial adviser about tax-friendly options for making a legacy gift.
  • Choose one or more organizations that have made a difference in your life and leave a gift in your will.
  • Contact the organization(s) of your choice to learn about opportunities for legacy giving.
  • Leave a percentage or specific dollar amount of the assets in you will to a charity of your choice.
  • Consider using non-cash assets (real estate, vehicles, art, jewelry, other personal property) for a legacy gift.
  • Name a charity as a beneficiary of your IRA pension plan or life insurance policy.
  • Remember deceased loved ones with a memorial gift to a charity.
  • Encourage family and friends to leave gifts to charities in their wills.
