As part of our 30th Anniversary, Beacon House launched our planned giving program, the Legacy Society. You can make an impact with a sustaining gift and help ensure academic achievement for the youth of Beacon House and the continuation of our afterschool programs for years to come.
Donors who share with us their plans to make a gift to Beacon House in their will are included as members of the Legacy Society.
Other ways to give smarter
You can leave a gift to Beacon House in your will. You can either give a specific amount of money or a percentage of your estate value to Beacon House. This kind of gift can offer tax benefits, ensure that your memory lives on and help Beacon House by supporting our future success.
Life Insurance or Retirement options
Beacon House can be designated as a beneficiary of a life insurance policy, retirement and pension funds, bank account and other financial accounts. HERE we offer sample language that you can use to include Beacon House in your will or to identify Beacon House as a beneficiary of a policy or account.
If you have already included Beacon House in your plans, it would be our honor to personally thank you and welcome you into the Legacy Society. Please let us know by completing the Gift Confirmation Form. If you have questions, please contact our Director of Development and Communications, Colleen Dolak at firstname.lastname@example.org.
My husband and I have always set aside a percentage of our annual income for organizations, like Beacon House, in which we deeply believe. When it came to deciding how to distribute the proceeds of our estate, it struck us both that we should follow the same principle. And that’s what we did – we decided on the percentage of our assets that we wanted to set aside and included Beacon House in our will. It feels good to know that after we’re gone, we will be continuing to help improve the lives and opportunities of the youth in the Edgewood Community.”
