Planning a gift for LightHouse

By planning a gift through your will, trust or other means, you make a meaningful and lasting difference for blind people of all ages. Whether it’s a family with a blind toddler attending Enchanted Hills, a professional learning to commute on public transit, or a senior learning skills to remain independent while adjusting to Macular Degeneration, the LightHouse is a beacon of possibility.

We hope you’ll be part of our future and future generations of blind people.

Ways to Give

Gifts in your will

You can make a gift to LightHouse through your will or trust. This document provides an example of how you can include a bequest for LightHouse in your will.

Everyone needs a will, even if you feel like you’re too young or don’t have an estate. LightHouse has partnered with FreeWill to provide a simple, intuitive and efficient way to create a will. This service is free—whether or not you choose to include a gift to LightHouse. Visit freewill.com/lighthousesf to get started.

Beneficiary Designations

You can make LightHouse a beneficiary of a retirement, life insurance, bank account or other account. These gifts are easy to make and can be tax beneficial.

Gifts that pay you income

A charitable gift annuity allows you to receive a tax deduction and income for life, while also making a gift to LightHouse.
