Legacy and Planned Giving
Leave a lasting legacy!
There are many ways to thoughtfully include Lighthouse Vision Loss Education Center in your estate planning. When you join the Lighthouse Legacy Society, you become a beacon of hope for those in need of vision rehabilitation.
Wills & Bequests
Some people believe that giving to charitable institutions through their will is only for the extremely wealthy. However, for every large, well-publicized charitable bequest, there are countless smaller ones arranged by people of all means, and in all walks of life. Giving through your will can be an easy way to continue to support individuals with vision loss, after your passing.
This gift pays you income. This is a life income gift that not only supports the mission of Lighthouse Vision Loss Education Center, but also pays you a guaranteed fixed income for life. These gifts are generally very simple to set up and do not require a substantial amount of investment. Upon your passing, the remainder continues to support our mission.
Charitable Remainder Trust (CRT)
This gift pays you income. A Charitable Remainder Trust (CRT) is a life income gift that pays income to you and/or other beneficiaries for a term of years or until your passing. When the trust terminates, Lighthouse Vision Loss Education Center receives the remainder of the trust.
Charitable Lead Trust (CLT)
A Charitable Lead Trust (CLT) is a gift that makes annual contributions to Lighthouse Vision Loss Education Center for a term of years. The property then passes to your heirs with substantial tax savings. You can safeguard your estate for your heirs while supporting Lighthouse Vision Loss Education Center.
Lighthouse Vision Loss Education Center can be named as the owner and/or beneficiary of an existing or new life insurance policy.
Under certain circumstances, Lighthouse Vision Loss Education Center can accept real estate property as a donation.
