Estate Planning

Making a provision in your estate plans can fund the future of St. Francis House and create a meaningful philanthropic legacy for you and your family. The easiest way is to make a charitable bequest though designating a gift of a fixed amount or a percentage of your estate.

In making a bequest, our formal name is St Francis House and our 501(c)(3) tax exempt number is 46-0423202

Gifts should be made “for the general purposes of the organization at the discretion of its board”. This enables St. Francis House to meet is most pressing needs, which can change over time.

Planned gifts may also include:

  • Cash or appreciated securities/ stock.
  • Retirement accounts (IRA, 401K, 403B)
  • Life Insurance

In addition to providing critical financial support for our work, your planned gift(s) may also provide you financial benefits including tax savings, reduced capital gains and estate taxes, and release for financial management. We encourage you to work closely with a financial advisor or estate attorney in determining your plans.

When donors share their intent to make a bequest or other planned gift(s) to St. Francis House they become members of St. Francis House.
