Benefits of joining the 1892 Founders Society include a role in determining how your legacy gift will be used, a relationship with Altenheim and other donors during your lifetime, satisfaction in knowing your legacy will make a difference for your community and special recognition in newsletters, annual reports and other Altenheim publications.

One of the easiest, most meaningful and enduring planned gifts is to include a bequest to The Altenheim Foundation in your will. It can be a specific dollar amount, a percentage of your estate, a portion of your estate after satisfying other bequests or a combination of these. Other legacy gifts are a life insurance policy, a recipient in your trust, a charitable gift annuity and a charitable remainder trust.

Motivation to leave a planned gift to The Altenheim Foundation may be gratitude for an exceptional experience, belief in Altenheim's mission, or a desire to make a difference. Whatever your motivation, your gift will have a lasting impact on the residents, families and the Altenheim community.

As with any estate plan, you should consult with your financial advisor.
