Legacy, Memorial, and Honorary Giving

Create Your Legacy of Hope

Your legacy gift to Heartspring will ensure hope and opportunity are provided to children for generations to come.

Through the 1934 Legacy Society, you can make a gift that will transform lives, costing you nothing during your lifetime. While the simplest way to support Heartspring is through cash gifts; legacy giving uses creative gifts of assets which can include stocks, bonds, property (real estate and personal property), wills, and insurance policies. Legacy gifts can provide you with charitable deductions and can offer additional tax savings as well.


What is a Legacy Gift?

Also referred to as planned gifts, legacy gifts are significant charitable gifts made during a donor’s lifetime or at a later date as a part of financial or estate plans.

Legacy Gifts:

  • Are easy to arrange. A simple paragraph added to your will or a designation on a life insurance policy is all it takes to designate funds to the charity or charities of your choice.
  • Can be changed or revoked as needed.
  • Allow you to be far more generous than you ever thought possible.
  • Preserve your savings and cash flow during your lifetime.

1934 Legacy Society

Heartspring’s rich history and legacy of hope have been made possible by generations of individuals who have created perpetual support to our mission through their estate plans. The generosity entrusted to Heartspring by 1934 Legacy Society members ensures we are able to continue to impact the lives of children with special needs for decades to come. We are deeply grateful for each member’s commitment to our future and to the successes of the children we serve.
