Leaving a Legacy
Individuals who wish to be partners in the future of our mission can make provisions for North Marin Community Services in their estate plans – either by will, trust, life-income gift or other planned giving arrangement.
Enrolling is easy. Simply advise the North Marin Community Services that a testamentary provision has been made. The size of the gift need not be disclosed. Legacy gifts can take many forms:
· Bequests in wills or living trusts;
· Life income gifts through a charitable remainder trust, pooled income fund or gift annuity;
· Retirement plan beneficiary designation; or
· Life insurance beneficiary designation or retirement assesses.
We encourage you to contact your tax advisor, financial advisor, or attorney when making your plans.
Everyone, regardless of income or whether you have dependents, should have a will. There are free resources you can access to make your will. www.freewill.com is a great example.
Benefits of Membership
As a thank you for your future investment in our work, donors who have notified us of their deferred gift arrangement will become members of our Legacy Circle. Our Legacy Circle honors the supporters of tomorrow that make this most thoughtful and personal gift. As a thank you, we will invite you to attend key events as our guest.
We understand that some people may wish to remain anonymous. Unless you choose to be anonymous, we will plan to list your name in our annual report and in the Legacy Circle Honor Roll that will be displayed in our Center. We will also send you a Legacy Circle Certificate of Enrollment, and a membership lapel pin that you can proudly wear to signal your deep and personal commitment to North Marin Community Services’ mission.
