Planned Giving

There is a special bond between the Hope Center and its supporters. There are people who have given regularly for years and others who have given when they can. Many of our supporters have chosen to remember the Hope Center in their estate planning. For some, it is a way to give in a measure beyond what they could otherwise contemplate. For others, it is a way to share the good fortune they have known in life.

However these gifts come, they are crucial to the Hope Center. Such commitment and generosity can only inspire us.

Our Seeds of Hope Society is a group of generous individuals who are helping to ensure the Hope Center’s future. Please contact Carrie Thayer at 859-225-4673 to learn more or to inform us if your estate planning includes the Hope Center.

Seeds that will Grow

Naming the Hope Center as a beneficiary in your will or trust is a simple way to make a commitment that will keep on giving services to Lexington’s homeless.

You can plant a seed of Hope through:

Specific Bequest
You can name the Hope Center as the direct beneficiary of a specific sum of money, a particular parcel of real estate or of a stated percentage of your estate.

Residuary Bequest
After making specific bequests to family or friends, you can name the Hope Center to receive all or part of the remaining amount – the residue.

Contingent Bequest
To provide for the situation when named individuals in your will do not survive you, you can name the Hope Center as contingent beneficiary.

Life Income Gift
If you decide to irrevocably transfer an asset or assets to the Hope Center, you (and, if you wish, a survivor) can receive income for life.

Life Insurance
If the circumstances under which you purchased your life insurance have changed, you may wish to donate your policy to the Hope Center or make the Hope Center your beneficiary.

Thank you for remembering the Hope Center and its clients in your estate planning. This ensures your legacy will live on in our community for years to come.
