Types of Planned Gifts

There are many ways you can help future generations of our neighbors in need.  The specific method of planned giving best for you will depend on your personal circumstances.  We invite you and/or your estate planner to contact our Relationship Manager, Claire Luby, to discuss ways to plan for and establish a legacy gift to SVDP.  We also have a network of legal and professional advisors who can help ensure you achieve your personal and philanthropic goals.
