Tomorrow’s results are created by today’s visionaries. Many of us imagine a day when no family in our community is homeless: a day when a parent can provide for his/her children’s most basic of necessities – shelter, food and clothing. Your support of Charlotte Family Housing helps empower families overcoming homelessness.
Leaving a gift in your will or estate ensures your legacy of giving to Charlotte Family Housing. We invite you to make a long-lasting impact with a gift in your will or estate to:
The simplest way to make a significant gift without affecting your assets during your lifetime is to make is a bequest. There are three main benefits to making a bequest:
Your assets remain in your control during your lifetime.
You can modify your bequest if your financial situation changes.
Making a charitable bequest can result in significant estate tax savings.
You may choose to designate a specific sum from your estate (e.g., $50,000), or you may choose to leave a percentage of your estate (e.g., 5 percent).
If you have already written your will or trust, you can amend a will or trust to make a gift without rewriting the entire document. Your attorney can prepare the simple statement, called a codicil, which adds a new provision while reaffirming the other terms of your will. Similarly, he or she can prepare an amendment to your revocable trust to add Charlotte Family Housing as a beneficiary.
Should you wish to include Charlotte Family Housing in your will or trust, please note that our legal name is Charlotte Family Housing, Inc. Our tax identification number is 58-1599120.
If you have already named Charlotte Family Housing in your estate plans, please let us know. We would be honored to welcome you into the Ash Society to recognize our supporters who are looking ahead to giving back.
