Remember Safer Foundation

Including Safer in your estate plans

Thanks to the various ways of estate giving, you can ensure that the important work of the Safer Foundation continues to serve men and women well into the future. A planned gift is a way to support any program of the Safer Foundation about which you are passionate.


How to Make a Planned Gift

Including a charitable gift in your estate giving is one way to manage the distribution of your assets. In addition to protecting your family’s security, you also are providing crucial support to the mission of the Safer Foundation. Charitable planned gifts are an option for everyone, regardless of income level.

You can make your planned gift from assets you hold now or from current or future income. You can also use your will to leave a legacy through a charitable bequest which can include a specific dollar amount, percent of your estate’s value, a paid life insurance policy or other types of assets.

Unrestricted planned gifts allow Safer Foundation the most flexibility in determining the greatest need for your gift and will help shape the mission of the organization in the future.


For more information regarding planned giving:

Please call Safer Foundation’s Development Office. We will work with you to make sure a gift in your will to Safer Foundation will carry out your charitable goals. Contact:
