Leave a Legacy Through Planned Giving
Planned giving is a gift that uses tax, financial, and charitable estate planning techniques to enable you to make a large gift commitment and at the same time receive tax and financial benefits, as well as the pleasure of supporting something close to your heart.

Ways to make thoughtful planned gifts.

• Contribute assets to Safe Shelter through your IRA or other retirement plan.
Make Safe Shelter the owner of a paid-up life insurance policy or the beneficiary of a life insurance policy.
