Legacy Giving

“My family and I are honored to make this personal investment in our community’s future and the stability of Neighborhood House. We hope others join us by making a legacy gift that will support the St. Paul community for years to come.”— Nancy Brady (Neighborhood House President)

Legacy Giving – Your gift for the future of your community

You can make a lasting impact on your community by creating a planned gift to Neighborhood House next time you update your estate plans. This increasingly popular way of giving is for all ages and involves a person’s assets or estate rather than current income. You can arrange to make a planned gift in several ways (see below). Many people give a certain dollar amount or leave a percentage of their wills. Some legacy gifts can be designed to accomplish certain financial goals such as reducing your tax obligation.

When you make a gift in your will or estate, you ensure Neighborhood House’s services are available for families for generations to come. Your planned gift is an incredible vote of confidence in Neighborhood House and helps the organization plan into the future of your community.

Thank you for considering a gift in your will to Neighborhood House!
