Make a Legacy Gift

“You have not lived today until you have done something for someone who can never repay you.” - John Bunyan, English writer and Puritan preacher, author of The Pilgrim's Progress

Leave a Legacy of Healing and Hope

 

If you are currently a Samaritan donor, you know that your support heals wounds and changes lives. By making a Legacy Gift to Samaritan, you can continue to impact the lives of those we serve beyond your own lifetime.

 

Did You Know...

 

  • You can leave a bequest to Samaritan and still provide well for your children’s future?

  • You can arrange for a legacy gift that provides you with a regular stream of income?

  • You do not have to be wealthy to make a legacy gift?

 

Here are some important things to consider before making your legacy gift to Samaritan (or any charity):

  • There are many planned giving vehicles. Talk to your financial advisor about your planned giving goals and explore your options. 

  • In your legal documents, use language that does not have the potential to limit the use of your gift. For example, naming a specific program could backfire for the charity if the name of the program changes or the program itself is changed or replaced. 

  • Call us at 412.741.7430 to arrange for a time to ask questions and talk to us about your goals and intentions.
