Planned Giving

A Lasting Legacy at High Hopes

Planned gifts are a meaningful way to give because they will help ensure the future of High Hopes for generations to come, while providing you or your estate with significant tax benefits. We suggest that you talk to your financial advisor, attorney or accountant about ways to make a planned gift and to determine which option might be best for you. You are also invited to discuss your planned giving needs with a member of High Hopes’ Planned Giving Advisory Council.


The Legacy Society

The Legacy Society offers an opportunity to perpetuate your interest in High Hopes for generations to come. People who have made a planned gift become members of the High Hopes Legacy Society and are recognized by having their names included on a permanent plaque at High Hopes, in the Legacy Garden near Hartman Pond, in the Annual Report, and by a special name tag to wear at High Hopes events. You will be invited to a gathering of members each year, and will receive regular mailings. There can also be significant tax benefits for you or your estate. Best of all, your membership in the Legacy Society will help us to continue serving people with disabilities into the future.

You can become a Legacy Society member by completing a Statement of Intent notifying us that you have included High Hopes in your will or by making another planned gift benefitting High Hopes.

Buy A Brick

Located next to the Hartman Pond is the beautiful Legacy Garden. Throughout the garden are bricks memorializing the names of individuals who made a bequest to High Hopes in the past as well as honoring individuals who have joined our Legacy Society. Your gift can also be made in honor or memory of a family member, friend or cherished pet and the stone will be inscribed with that information, thereby providing a lasting memorial and long term financial support for High Hopes.

A Lasting Memory
