Make a big impact with a future gift.

If you would like to extend your support of Shepherd Center to make a lasting impact, there are several gift arrangements from which to choose.

Whether you would like to support our work today or benefit us after your lifetime, you can find a charitable plan that lets you provide for your family and support Shepherd Center. Here are some of the most popular charitable plans to consider:

Remember us in your will.

Structure your will to provide for your family first. Then, include a gift to the charitable organizations you love. Just a few simple sentences and a meeting with an estate planning attorney are all it takes.

Make a gift and receive fixed payments for life.

If you'd like to support Shepherd Center and receive steady payments for life, a charitable gift annuity may be right for you.

Donate stocks.

If you give stocks you've owned for more than one year that are worth more than when you purchased them, you'll qualify for significant tax advantages.

Give retirement plan assets.

Consider making Shepherd Center a beneficiary of a percentage of your retirement plan assets. Then, leave less heavily taxed assets to your loved ones.

Arrange a charitable trust.

With a charitable remainder trust, you can receive income each year (either fixed or variable) from assets you place in the trust. After your lifetime, the balance in the trust goes to the charities of your choice.

Use life insurance to make a gift.

There are several ways you can use life insurance to give back to Shepherd Center. We can help you explore your options.
