For the first time ever, the LightHouse is able to offer Charitable Gift Annuities to our community, a chance to receive an income stream and support the LightHouse. Our partners at Silicon Valley Community Foundation are making this possible.

Presenter Rebecca Dupras, Esq. assists individuals and corporate donors, as well as other nonprofits, to craft meaningful philanthropic strategies. She joined Silicon Valley Community Foundation in 2014 as the director of planned giving. She is skilled at working with donors and their professional advisors to craft deferred gifts to meet their philanthropic goals.

What is planned giving?
Any charitable giving other than a simple, immediate gift of money to charity. Often involves tax and legal planning. This workshop will focus on three different types of planned giving. Bequests, which are testamentary gifts left through a donor’s living will/trust. Charitable Gift Annuities are a low-cost way to create a life income stream and benefit LightHouse. And Charitable Remainder Trusts, a customizable way to create a life income stream and benefit LightHouse. This workshop covers the details of each type of giving and help you select your best option.

Perhaps you have experienced LightHouse programs first-hand or are simply a caring and compassionate community member. By making a bequest or other planned gift, you can acknowledge LightHouse for the Blind in a meaningful way and make a lasting difference for the LightHouse and for your own personal legacy.
