Legacy gift planning is a profound opportunity to make a statement about all that you hold most dear—your loved ones, your passions and your community. The thought you put into making plans now will give you the peace of mind that your legacy will indeed reflect your life, your beliefs and your values in the future.

But let’s face it: many of us put off planning for the future. We do it because financial planning seems very complicated. Or we’re afraid to think about death. Or we think our “estate” is too small. But legacy gift planning doesn’t have to be complicated. And, far from being somber, it’s really about defining your own life and the inheritance you leave—no matter how many assets you have.

When you choose to make a legacy gift to Guilford Green Foundation, you’re making an enduring impact on the lives of LGBTQ people for generations to come. You’re supporting GGF’s Endowment Fund, which enables us to make a difference in our community, as well as the wider movement to meet people’s needs, secure their rights, and celebrate our diversity. And your commitment and leadership can serve as a powerful inspiration to others.

If you’re interested in becoming part of the GGF Legacy Circle, contact our office for a list of professionals in our community that can assist you with your planned giving needs.
