There are many reasons to make a bequest. A bequest allows you to honor a loved one, while providing critical support to an organization. Giving by bequest costs nothing now, yet it may give you a great deal of satisfaction to know that your future gift will live on, promoting independence, self-reliance and confidence for blind and visually impaired individuals for years to come.
The lasting impact of bequests-both large and small-has helped shape the LightHouse for the Blind into what it is today. For many friends of the LightHouse, a charitable bequest is the easiest and best way to make a gift. By means of your will or other estate plan, you can name LightHouse for the Blind or Enchanted Hills Camp as the beneficiary of a portion of your estate, or of particular assets in your estate. Many of the most powerful gifts with an enduring impact have been bequests.
Even last month we received the latest gift of enduring love – a $906,000 bequest from Agnes Cole to be used to help support LightHouse programs over the long term.
