Mindful Giving: Do You Have a Plan?
What Planned Gifts Support
Planned gifts may be directed to specific grantmaking or community programs at Liberty Hill. However, many legacy donors have elected to make unrestricted contributions to accomplish Liberty Hill's highest priorities, giving the foundation the flexibility to address changing needs and conditions over time.
What and How to Give
Liberty Hill's philanthropic advisors will work with you, your family and your financial advisors to build a legacy plan tailored to your values and priorities, which will sustain social justice impact for the future. Planned gifts with Liberty Hill ensure that your philanthropic vision will be honored and supported.
- Legacy gifts can be in the form of cash, stock, bonds or mutual shares, and real estate.
- The gifts may be made in a bequest through a will, by gifts through living trusts or other non-charitable trusts, through a Charitable Remainder Trust or Charitable Lead Trust, and by beneficiary designation through retirement plans or insurance policies.
- If you have a donor advised fund with Liberty Hill, a memorandum of charitable intent will ensure that your philanthropic resources will continue to benefit social justice— guided either by Liberty Hill or by your designated successors.
I’m thinking about my legacy. When I wrote Liberty Hill into my will it was a defining moment, because although I’m not a wealthy person, I realized there are so many ways to give.
