Leave Your Legacy

Generosity comes in many forms, and it’s often the best way for you to support important causes that matter the most to you in your life. Your gift to PATH ensures a legacy for this special person that extends far into the future.

There are many ways to leave a legacy. Available options are:

  • Charitable Gift Annuities
  • Gifts of Appreciated Assets
  • IRA Charitable Rollover
  • Charitable Remainder Trusts
  • Wills, Trusts & Bequests
  • Life Estate Agreements
  • Gifts of Life Insurance

There are many details to be considered with a charitable planned gift, so please consult your own attorney and tax advisor before you decide on the best method of giving that is right for your situation. If you have already included PATH in your will, please let us know by contacting Andrea Wilson, Executive Director at Andrea_Wilson@PATHHelps.org.
