Estate Planning & Memorials

Include Goodwill In Your Estate Planning

Have you reviewed your long-range financial and estate plans recently? Your will, living trust, retirement plans, and other gift and estate planning vehicles can provide another opportunity to support your favorite charitable interests. If you would be interested in making a gift of ongoing significance, these ideas may interest you:

  • A gift included in your will or living trust is one way to establish a lasting legacy.
  • A gift of retirement assets, such as pension plans or IRAs, may allow you to give more than you thought possible, while eliminating taxes that may otherwise largely consume these assets.
  • Consider gifts of life insurance. Gifts of policies or proceeds you may no longer need offer excellent tax benefits.

We sincerely appreciate your interest and support in helping Goodwill change lives through the power of work. A member of the Fund Development Department will be pleased to discuss specific opportunities available through planned giving with you and your financial advisor or attorney. Conversations will remain confidential and place you under no obligation.

Memorials & Honor Gifts
Memorial or honor contributions offer many ways to recognize people who are special to you.  Memorial gifts benefit the community by making a meaningful difference in memory of someone special.  Honor gifts can express thanks and appreciation, extend congratulations or convey messages of best wishes.  When you make a memorial or honor gift, Goodwill will notify the family or individual of your thoughtfulness.

Need a gift for a family member, friends or co-worker? Make a donation to Goodwill Industries in their honor and a gift card will be sent on your behalf.
