Estate planning makes certain that your property will be distributed according to your wishes after your death and helps to manage the eroding effects of federal estate taxes and the expenses of estate administration. Estate planning is really just another term for good stewardship.
Put your financial assets to work in a way that extends the benefits of your generosity and ensures that no one has to go hungry. We will work with you, and your financial advisors if desired, to help you select the giving tools to meet your philanthropic goals. You and your loved ones could also receive substantial tax and financial benefits, and you will be welcomed as a member of our Legacy Society.
The Legacy Society is a special network recognizing supporters who include Harry Chapin Food Bank in a Will or estate plan, or who establish a gift with Harry Chapin Food Bank that provides income for life. Harry Chapin Food Bank has been leading our community in the fight to end hunger through the vital support of the Legacy Society, and other individuals who have made special commitments to Harry Chapin Food Bank. Everything we have accomplished we have accomplished with you, our donors.
We hope you will consider joining the Legacy Society and help continue Harry Chapin Food Bank’s work to ensure that no one has to go hungry. Through your estate plan, you can pass on your cherished values and share the gift of nutrition with generations to come.
