Make a Planned Gift

There’s no time like the present to ensure that you leave a legacy for the benefit of future generations. Thoughtfully prepared gifts, like a willed bequest or a gift of life insurance, are gifts that can form the financial bedrock for the future of the programs and services provided by Gillian’s Place. These types of planned gifts reflect the strong relationship between Gillian’s Place and its most solid supporters. You can make a very real contribution to the success of our mission, both today, and in the future with a little planning today.

A planned gift is a charitable donation that is planned now, and received later through your estate. Some people think that only the wealthy make this type of donation. The truth is, however, that anyone can plan a legacy gift no matter their current income or assets. And, in addition to the personal satisfaction they’ve received from supporting an organization near and dear to their heart, a growing number of our financial supporters have also been attracted by the tax benefits some planned gifts can provide. We invite you to learn more about the special opportunities to support the work of Gillian’s Place.
