Through a Legacy Gift, you have the opportunity to support Garfield Park during your lifetime and as a lasting legacy through a bequest. Legacy Gifts offer many options for giving, including:
- Charitable Gift Annuities
- Charitable Remainder Trusts
- Endowment Funds
- Gifts of Life Insurance, Real property and Retirement Plan Assets
Legacy Gifts made through financial and estate planning usually ensure a lasting legacy while providing tax and financial benefits to the donor. Donors are encouraged to seek legal and financial counsel when exploring planned giving opportunities.
For more information on making Legacy Gifts, contact Lynda Burrello , FOGP Board President, by phone 317-796-5782 or email info@GarfieldParkIndy.org
A bequest from the estate of Lucile Wahl became the seed money that launched the Friends of Garfield Park on this road to park preservation and stewardship. By placing this legacy gift into trust we are able to secure a future for Lucile’s beloved park.
Since its founding, Friends has raised over $2 million and established the $1 million Garfield Park Endowment Fund currently under management with Central Indiana Community Foundation.
