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. And the full amount of your gift is deductible from your taxable estate. 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.
