Planned Giving

Planned Giving is a charitable gift that you create from your accumulated resources to be given either during your lifetime or after your passing. This Planned Giving Guide will explain the common ways you can plan. Since 1979, Wings of Hope Family Crisis Services has provided both emergency shelter and support services for families living with trauma from Domestic Violence, Sexual Assault and Stalking. We work fervently to provide these families with the tools to reach Safety, Hope and Empowerment. The legacy you are building through Planned Giving to Wings of Hope Family Crisis Services provides the opportunity to rebuild families and relationships and to break the cycle of violence. The information contained in this Guide is meant to provide you with a basic understanding of Planned Giving options. It is not intended to be a complete reference for all the options you might want to consider nor does it constitute any legal or financial advice or expertise. In this process of Planned Giving, we encourage you to consult with your attorney and accountant to discuss your giving goals. We take our stewardship of your legacy very seriously. We are governed by an independent Board of Directors who are tasked with dutiful financial oversight and governance. Please let us know if we can assist you and be assured we will do all we can to facilitate your gift planning.
