Donate Through Personal Legacy Giving

(Life Insurance, Wills, Trusts & Bequests)


Whether you regard yourself as rich, poor or somewhere between, your personal legacy gift will help SVDP Cleveland fulfill our mission now and long into the future and will serve as an example to your heirs of the values and ideals you hold dear.

Leaving a bequest or planning a gift to the St. Vincent de Paul Society creates a life-changing legacy of hope for the future.  Making your wishes known through a will assures that your intentions are fulfilled and allows you to plan your gift for the greatest legal and tax advantages to your heirs.

Careful planning can ensure that you realize the maximum benefit from your giving.  For example, equity donations — stocks, bonds, mutual funds and other properties — can provide support for SVDP while accruing multiple tax advantages for the donor.

We suggest that you consult your financial adviser regarding the amount, timing and type of asset to donate to ensure that you maximize both your charitable giving deductions and philanthropic impact.
