Legacy Giving

Legacy Giving

Many Habitat supporters choose to leave a donation in their wills and trusts as an important way to have long-term impact, without any upfront cost during their lifetimes. Making a will is one of the most impactful ways to extend your love and generosity for your family and friends. It can also help provide homes and hope for your community. By leaving a gift to Habitat for Humanity of Wood County Ohio in your will or trust, you are building a powerful legacy of reducing poverty and homelessness. Legacy giving isn’t only for the wealthy — gifts of any size are deeply appreciated, and there is a wide range in gift sizes.

You have many options when it comes to making a planned gift, including (but not limited to): Wills and living trusts, beneficiary designations, charitable gift annuities, charitable remainder trusts, charitable lead trusts, real estate, life insurance, endowed gifts, donor advised funds, bank accounts and IRAs/retirement plans, gifts of stock and securities.
