Legacy Giving

Fox Valley Hands of Hope’s continued success is predicated on our ability to build ongoing, sustainable sources of funding. Gifts large and small are important. What better way to thank the people or organization that has had an impact on your life than to make a contribution through your estate planning?

By making bequests and other “planned giving,” you can continue to help an organization that is making an important difference in your community. There are several ways to make a bequest and many different types of property that can be contributed, including cash, appreciated securities, works of art and real estate.

By creating a bequest or initiating planned giving…

  • … You have the personal satisfaction of making a substantial contribution to a charitable organization you have valued during your lifetime.
  • … You receive gratification that comes from knowing that your gift will help others.
  • … You may reduce or even eliminate federal estate and/or inheritance taxes (consult with your accountant or qualified representative).
