Planned Giving

For a homeless youth without a family, there is no such thing as an inheritance … no nest egg passed from generation to generation. But through your legacy, our young people will know that someone remembered them … and did plan for their future by funding programs that will keep them off the streets for good.

Making a gift through your will is an excellent choice if you want to have a lasting impact on the lives of homeless kids long after you are gone but wish to maintain liquidity and use of your assets during your lifetime. A planned gift has tax implications and is often transmitted through a legal instrument, such as a will or a trust. A bequest can be unrestricted, enabling Covenant House to direct your funds where future need is greatest, or restricted to a particular program or Covenant House location.
