Legacy Gifts

What counts in life is not the mere fact that we have lived.
It is what difference we have made to the lives of others that will determine the significance of the life we lead.
~ Nelson Mandela

Legacy Gifts

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:

  • Bequests
  • 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 Legacy Gifts, contact Mark Bowell, Executive Director by phone, 317-840-8111 or email, dmbowell@gmail.com
