Planned Giving

Planned gifts offer creative, flexible strategies for your estate and charitable planning. Some even provide you with income. Many can reduce your taxes. To become a Society of Hope member, or to learn more about the Society of Hope, contact us at


You can include a gift to Housing Hope in your will or trust. These deferred gifts ensure that future generations will benefit from your generosity.

A bequest is a gift by will. It can be a specific dollar amount or asset, a percentage or all of the residue of your estate, restricted (to be used for a particular purpose), unrestricted (to be used for general purposes) or contingent (made only if specific conditions occur, i.e., a spouse has died before the donor). In addition, your assets remain in your control and your gift can be changed at any time should your situation change.

Please let us know at if you have added Housing Hope to your will. We would love to add your name to the Society of Hope program and recognize you for your generosity.
