Leave a legacy through Laurel House
Would you like to leave behind a legacy of helping people in need at the ends of their lives?
You can, by leaving a gift to Laurel House through your will, trust, IRA, other retirement plan, life insurance or real estate ownership rights. No matter the approach (gift, bequest, beneficiary naming, ownership rights, etc.) you’ll continue making a difference – even after you’re gone!
Regular folks leave legacy gifts to charities they care about. You don’t have to be Andrew Carnegie or Ross Perot or Ray Kroc.
What amount should you leave to charity?
Think about leaving a percentage. That way, your gift can adjust as your wealth adjusts.
What percentage? That totally depends on your circumstances. For example, if you have children and grandchildren to leave gifts to, leave them a suitable percentage. Just make sure your percentages add up to 100%.
