LightHouse Legacy Society: How do I Start?

You have the power to make a lasting impact for the students of LightHouse for the Blind through a planned gift. These types of charitable contributions let you support our programs for the blind far into the future while also providing tax and other benefits to you. An estate attorney can help you determine a strategy individualized to your needs and portfolio. If you don’t already have one, the LightHouse can suggest qualified estate attorneys for you to work with directly.

Planned Giving: Under 40
Your life feels newly supersized with career responsibilities surging and, perhaps, a young family in the nest. You’re focused on the present, but are you prepared in case of unexpected tragedy? Your first estate plan is usually focused on protecting the people and causes you love.

Planned Giving: Ages 55-69
You are deep in your professional career, but perhaps retirement is around the corner—or here. Take steps now to make sure you can thoroughly enjoy the extra time you’ll have to travel and perhaps spend time with loved ones. By planning your estate you can leave assets to your family, help LightHouse expand life-changing programs for the blind, and wisely reduce the tax burden on your family.

Planned Giving: Ages 70+
Put your mind at ease by learning how to make your retirement dollars last. Now is the time to be diligent about updating estate plans, talking to your loved ones about your choices and investing in the future of the organizations that are meaningful to you.
