Legacy Society

The Friends Program's Legacy Society is a dedicated group of friends who have made planned gifts to the program to ensure and strengthen its future. Planned giving opportunities include the following:

Bequests and Estate Plan Gifts

You may make a bequest or gift through your estate by including a provision in your will or living trust, or by naming the Friends Program as a beneficiary of a retirement plan or life insurance policy.  The amount left to the Friends Program can be expressed as a dollar amount or as a percentage of the assets to be given.

Life Income Gifts

A life income gift allows you to give assets to the Friends Program while providing yourself or others with income for a period of time before the Friends Program is permitted to use your gift.  You may make a life income gift by transferring securities, cash, or other property to the Friends Program.  The Friends Program then manages the investment of the assets and pays an income to you, your designated beneficiaries, or both.  Income payments continue for the beneficiaries' lives or, in some cases, for a fixed term.
Charitable Gift Annuity - In exchange for an outright gift, the Friends Program agrees by contract to pay a fixed amount each year to you and/or another beneficiary for life.

Charitable Remainder Trust - You establish a trust form which you and/or other beneficiaries receive annual payments for life and/or a term of years.  At the end of the term, the remainder of the trust assets go to the Friends Program for the purposes you designate.
As part of the Legacy Society, you can establish a named fund within the Friends Program Endowment to recoginize your support of the organization and to direct how your want your gift to be used.
