Legacy Giving

You do not need to be wealthy to leave a legacy of hope for homeless families with children. And you don't have to wait until you are gone for your lasting generosity to be celebrated. 

Make your core values known with a planned gift to Family Renew Community, thereby joining our Abiding Angels. Members of this legacy society are forward-thinking donors who will support our long-term success in helping families with children overcome and avoid homelessness. And they will be long remembered.

What better way to build on your lifetime of support for this cause about which you are passionate? Here are methods through which you can contribute to the long-term stability of our programs to provide a safe, stable home for homeless families with children, and equip them with the tools they need to be self-sufficient. We encourage you to consult with your financial adviser, attorney and/or accountant to discuss these options, then declare your intention to make a legacy gift.

Gift in Your Will or Trust

One of the easiest ways to help involves leaving a gift for Family Renew Community in your will or living trust. A bequest may be for a particular dollar amount, a percentage of your estate or a specific asset. The gift may be made for general support for Family Renew Community’s mission or restricted for a specific purpose. Estate tax savings may be significant. CLICK HERE FOR SAMPLE BEQUEST LANGUAGE.

Life Insurance or IRA Beneficiary Designation

Naming Family Renew Community as a beneficiary of a life insurance policy or retirement account is an often overlooked yet easy way to make a significant contribution and establish your legacy of giving. You can designate Family Renew as the primary or secondary beneficiary of either all or some percentage of the proceeds from the policy or account. Retirement plan assets are ideal for charitable giving purposes because these assets are often heavily taxed when passed to non-spouse beneficiaries.

Life Income Gifts

Life income gifts allow you to designate Family Renew Community to receive a legacy gift, while you earn income for yourself during your lifetime. The two most popular life income gifts are charitable remainder trusts and charitable gift annuities. Family Renew Community will gratefully work with your financial professional to be named the designated charity for your charitable remainder trust. Family Renew Community will offer charitable gift annuities.
