We all age, and whether we are facing the challenges of aging ourselves, going through it with a parent, or simply anticipating it, we can all appreciate the financial challenges aging can bring. Unfortunately, not everyone can cope with those challenges.

That is why sharing part of what we leave behind with those less fortunate is the ultimate gift. By naming Hearth in your will, pension plan, or insurance policy, you insure that part of your legacy includes giving elders less fortunate than you a roof over their head, the services they need, and a home for good.

I agreed to chair Hearth’s Bequest Society because leaving such a meaningful legacy makes sense to me. It is a painless way to make a difference. Your assets remain under your control during your lifetime; you can modify your gift/bequest at any time; and you can direct your gift/bequest to be used for a particular purpose. There is no upper limit on the estate tax deductions that can be claimed for your charitable bequest. Best of all, it is a wonderful way to give much more than you might be able to right now.

If you have made a gift/bequest to Hearth, please let us know so we can thank you for your generosity. If you would like more information, or specific language, we would be glad to help. Simply send me an e-mail at info@hearth-home.org. I look forward to hearing from you and welcoming you into Hearth’s Bequest Society.
