Legacy Giving

Good stewardship of our resources is a healthy way to ensure that programs we care about today will be available for tomorrow. To demonstrate a depth of commitment to the future of Lutherwood a planned gift, most often through an estate, will make a significantl contribution to the wellness of future generations. There are many ways to make a planned gift: bequests, life insurance, charitable gift annuities, trusts and gifts of real estate and securities.

The following are the 2 most common ways to leave a Legacy Gift to Lutherwood:


Through your will, you can continue your commitment to Lutherwood by identifying a charitable gift of either a certain amount of money or a percentage of your assets. This kind of donation can generate tax credits to offset taxes payable by your estate.

Gift of Life Insurance Policy

Donors can plan now for future gifts to Lutherwood Child and Family Foundation. By designating the Foundation as owner of a new or existing insurance policy, you continue to make premium payments and receive a charitable tax receipt for the premiums paid. If you designate the Foundation as beneficiary only, the proceeds of the policy go directly to the Foundation upon death and your estate receives a tax credit for the policy payout. Through charitable life insurance donations, donors can make larger gifts than they might otherwise have thought possible.
