Leave a forever gift for HomeFirst
A legacy gift of any size will advance our mission to confront homelessness by cultivating people’s potential to get housed and stay housed. If you, like us, believe this mission is not an overnight concept, but will require long-term investment and support, a planned gift may resonate.
HomeFirst’s vision is to end homeless by ensuring that everyone has a home that is an enduring refuge from homelessness. With nearly 10,000 people of all ages currently homeless in Santa Clara County, meaning we need long term commitments to solve the crisis now and in the foreseeable future. We need the tools to sustain our work.
- Linda Lingle
What is a Legacy Gift?
Also known as planned giving, a legacy gift is a donation in addition to annual gifts of cash or securities. While there are many types of such gifts – bequests, retirement plan or life insurance, stock transfer, gift annuities, charitable remainder trust, gifts of property, for instance.
This type of gift need not be complicated, but it should always be made through consultation with a Financial Planner or Wealth Advisor. With this expertise, you can decide what vehicle works best for you at this time in your life, knowing that it is an investment in the sustainability of HomeFirst.
